Chicago: Basketball Twins Slain In Drive By Shooting




Edwin Bryant and Edward Bryant were killed early Sunday morning in Old Town, three weeks after they turned 17.

Edward and Edwin Bryant, were visiting their old neighborhood when someone in a passing dark-colored vehicle opened fire around 3 a.m. Sunday at the corner of Hudson and Evergreen avenues.

Both brothers were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where they were pronounced dead about an hour apart from each other. Edwin had been shot in the chest and back; Edward had been shot in the chest and head.


The fraternal twins had frequented the Stamps-Rhine Center, where Edward -- who went by Ed -- was a standout basketball player with the Chicago Demons.  Edwin had played basketball when he was younger but didn't pursue it as a high school student. Edwin was more interested in football, Carter said.

The drive-by shooting happened around 3:15 a.m. in the 400 block of West Evergreen Avenue, and Carter learned of the deaths soon afterward. Later that day, he met with some of Ed's basketball teammates.


Family, friends and residents gather to pray during a vigil Oct. 31, 2016, for twins Edward and Edwin Bryant near the scene where the 17-year-olds were killed in an apparent drive-by shooting early Oct. 30, 2016, in the 400 block of West Evergreen Avenue in Chicago's Old Town neighborhood.
