Pastor Corey Brooks halts walk to bury Englewood rapper killed in shooting

September 14, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Brooks says the death of 18-year-old Joseph Coleman, also known as "Lil Jojo," has sparked threats of retaliatory violence.

Brooks is the man who lived atop an abandoned hotel to raise money to have it turned into a South Side community center.

He says he hopes to quell the tension while comforting Coleman's family.
