CHICAGO -- Police in Chicago say a high school student was shot and killed during a robbery attempt as he left his school on the city's South Side.

The Cook County medical examiner's office identified the victim as 18-year-old Terrance Wright.

Wright was a senior at Banner Academy South High School.

A city newspaper reported five would-be robbers approached Wright as he left the school Friday afternoon in the Jeffrey Manor neighborhood.

Police say the victim fought back and was shot in the chest.
