Two brothers are being sought by Chicago Police in connection with the drive-by shooting Sunday that left a 15-year-old dead and his mother wounded.

The brothers are 26 and 28 years old, police said in an alert, and may be driving a white 2000 Cadillac STS with Illinois license plates. Police are not publicly identifying the men as they have not been arrested or charged.

The shooting occurred around 4 p.m. in the 700 block of North Springfield in the East Garfield Park neighborhood. 

Antonio Johnson, who was on the front porch with his family, was struck in the head and pronounced dead later Sunday night. His mother, Annette Johnson, was wounded in the arm.

Antonio's organs were later donated to his grandmother, who is paralyzed after being struck years ago by a stray bullet.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police.
