CHICAGO (WLS) -- Opening statements are scheduled to begin Tuesday for two men accused of killing 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee four years ago.

Police believe Tyshawn was targeted because his father was a member of a rival gang suspected in another shooting.

The accused getaway driver pleaded guilty earlier this month in exchange for a 25-year sentence.
