A funeral will be held Friday for a 17-year-old who was gunned down last week on the city's South Side.

DeJuan Jackson was killed while walking to his grandmother's home in the Oakland neighborhood.

He was with a group of people when someone in a passing car opened fire. A 14-year-old has been charged with his murder.

Investigators say Jackson had no criminal record or gang affiliation.

His family says he dreamt of becoming a lawyer.
