Yesterday, NewsOne reported on Jalen’s murder in front of his mother, Marla Stogner, and his 11- and 4-year old brothers at a laundromat in the Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago. Stogner said she traveled over 20 blocks from her home to wash clothes because she felt it was a safer area, according to CBS Chicago.

Stogner was assisting his mother by unloading laundry from the car when he exchanged “dirty looks” with Padilla, leading to an altercation that lasted mere seconds. When the teen pulled out his gun, Jalen attempted to run, but was shot in the side of his back. According to the Tribune, his mother became “frozen” when she saw the weapon and his little brother dropped the detergent in horror.

“Just to see my son lying in that puddle of blood, and I couldn’t do nothing to save him,” said Marla Stogner. “I just called and screaming his name and he just wasn’t responding.

“I was just calling his name, just calling his name to see if he could hear my voice,” she continued. “‘Just hold on,’ I was just telling him to hold on.”

He couldn’t hold on. The shooting occurred at approximately 4:20 p..m Friday afternoon; Jalen was pronounced dead at 5:11 p.m. at Stroger Hospital in Chicago  — less than one hour later.

According to CBS Chicago, Jalen had recently celebrated his birthday and was practicing for his driver’ license.

Padilla is expected to appear in bond court on Monday.
