Rapper Capo and Baby Killed by Alleged Gang Members in Broad Daylight
A 13-month-old baby on his way to the beach with his mom was killed Saturday when a car fleeing a drive-by shooting lost control and jumped a curb, police say.
The presumably gang-related shooting began around 1:45 p.m. Saturday when Chicago rapper Capo—a member of Chief Keef’s Glo Gang—was shot in the hip and back. The up-and-coming rapper—real name Marvin Carr—was later pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
But that wasn’t the only fatality linked to the shooters. It’s still unclear who was involved, but someone “connected to law enforcement” apparently began chasing the vehicle after the shooting.
Cops say the alleged shooters lost control of their car about three miles away from the crime scene, mowing over Dillon Harris, a 13-month-old baby sitting in his stroller outside a bus stop.
The baby’s mother, who declined to give her name to reporters, said she and three of her kids were on their way to the beach when the car suddenly jumped the curb. Via the Chicago Sun Times:
“All of a sudden, they swerved and hit a pole and hit my baby,” said the mother, who declined to give her name.
She said she tried to push all of her kids out of the way but didn’t have enough time to get Dillan clear of the danger.
“It happened in the blink of an eye,” she said. “When I looked up, they were just there. I tried my best to save my baby.”
When she saw the stroller had been hit, she said, “I knew he was gone,”
According to ABC 7, the car continued driving for a short distance before two occupants jumped out and continued on foot.
“The boys jumped out of the car right here in the alley and ran down the street and like I said, the two who were here, you could tell they didn’t know where to go,” a witness tells the network.
Police say they are questioning two suspects but no charges have been filed.
