"Kindness for Tyshawn"
"This is gonna be his family's last time seeing him, you know?" says neighborhood barber Schyler Chandler as he grooms the hair of nine year-old Tyshawn Lee. "I just want to make him look as best as possible."
Lee was lured away from a basketball game into a Chicago alley where he was executed by gang members. His killing shocked the city which saw 443 gun murders in 2015.
"Gotta get a last haircut," Chandler said. "Send 'em off right. I feel like it's my duty."
