Brother of slain Chicago cop killed after birthday party

When Anna Lee heard her youngest of four children had been shot on his way home from celebrating his upcoming birthday, she was hoping he took a bullet to his leg or arm.
She and her husband, Bob, couldn't bury another child who lost his life to violence, they said.
"I was in denial," Bob Lee said. "I couldn't comprehend. Did it happen again?"
Their youngest, Steven Lee, who would have turned 33 Monday, was shot in the abdomen as he walked home from the East of the Ryan lounge about 5:52 a.m. Sunday in the 8100 block of South Ingleside Avenue in the Avalon Park neighborhood.
Lee's brother was Eric Lee, a Chicago police officer who was killed in 2001 as he and other officers responded to a call about a homeless man being beaten in an alley.
