The Sun-Times reports the DePaul University senior, Francisco Valencia, 21, of the 5100 block of West Strong Street, died from multiple gun shot wounds where a Halloween party was taking place in the 1700 block of North Rockwell Street on Sunday.

At 1:15 a.m. gun shots were fired, and at 4 a.m. Valencia was pronounced dead at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. Daisy Camacho was also shot and wounded in the incident.

Sometimes we might believe the violence is only obtained in "scary" neighborhod, but the truth is that it happens everywhere. Its so sad how a young Latino student was gunned down by some stuid decision another person made. In addition, knowing that we cannot do anything of brining back Francisco Valencia maybe we should consider his accomplishment and consider him a leader for the Latino community.
