Chicago rapper Capo dead in drive-by; fleeing suspects kill baby in hit-and-run

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.

“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.”

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.
