CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man who talked about gun violence on the CNN documentary series “Chicagoland” has been shot and killed.

Chicago Police say the body of 22-year-old Lee McCullum III was found on the street with a gunshot wound early Thursday on the city’s far South Side. Police say they believe he was shot as part of a gang dispute.

McCullum was featured in episodes of the series about Chicago gun violence that dealt with Fenger High School - the school he attended in one of the city’s most violent neighborhoods.

In the series, McCullum talked about his efforts to escape the gun violence that plagued the neighborhood. He won praise from the principal and others for staying in school and doing all he could to escape gangs.
