The rapper Capo, a member of Chief Keef’s Glo Gang, was killed in a Chicago drive by — and the fleeing shooters mowed down a baby boy in a stroller as they sped away, authorities said.
The 22-year-old was shot in the hip and back about 1:40 p.m. on Saturday in the city’s South Side, police said.
The suspects fled after the shooting and plowed into the 13-month-old boy just over three miles away, Chicago police Officer Veejay Zala told the Daily News.
Police haven’t named the victims, but Capo’s manager, Renaldo Hess, told the Chicago Sun-Times the young star was killed in the shooting.
Dillan Harris, 1, was run down by the suspects wanted in a Chicago rapper’s drive-by killing, authorities say.
“He was a good kid,” Hess told the newspaper. “The streets of Chicago is something. He was murdered. I don’t understand what is going on with all these kids.”
Capo, whose real name was Marvin Carr, was a documented gang member, according to a police source.
Two people are being questioned in the fatal shooting, the source said.The baby, Dillan Harris, was with his mother and two older sisters when the killer’s vehicle barreled onto the sidewalk, slamming into the child, the Chicago Tribune reported.
“I was trying to save my baby,” the boy’s mom told the newspaper. “I never imagined this would happen... my son gone so soon.”
The boy was rushed to University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital where he died, Zala said.
A witness claimed the people in the car continued across a parking lot before bolting from the vehicle on foot.
“The boys jumped out of the car right here in the alley and ran down the street,” witness Erin Fletcher told WLS-TV.
Rappers and fans mourned Carr’s death on social media.“RIP youngbull,” hip hop star Meek Mill wrote on Twitter.
Chief Keef posted late Saturday as news of the shooting spread.“I Love u..... bigggglo I love u!!!!!!,” he wrote.
The following day, he announced he had started the Stop the Violence Now Foundation and pledged to appear from Los Angeles in a free hologram concert in Chicago on Friday, according to the Tribune. Chief Keef will encourage attendees to contribute money for young Dillan's family, a spokesman for the rapper told the publication.
Chief Keef is "just so heartbroken and appalled" by the incident that he wanted to help in some way, the spokesman said. But, the spokesman noted, Chief Keef can't perform in person because of "outstanding warrants his legal team is addressing."
