Manager: Rapper Capo Killed in South Shore Shooting

Marvin Carr, known as Capo, was a member of Chief Keef's "Glo Gang"

Chicago rapper Capo, a member of Chief Keef’s “Glo Gang,” was killed in a South Shore neighborhood shooting that resulted in a 13-month-old boy being fatally struck by a vehicle fleeing the gang-related attack Saturday afternoon, according to the group’s manager.

The 22-year-old man was shot in the hip and back in a possible drive-by at about 1:45 p.m. in the 7700 block of South Kingston, police said.

He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he later died, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office hadn’t confirmed the death as of Sunday morning.

Marvin Carr, who went by the name Capo, was the man killed in the attack, according to manager Renaldo Hess. A police source confirmed the identity of the victim.

Soon after the shooting, a vehicle hit 10-month-old Dillan Harris in a stroller as he and his mother waited for a bus at 63rd and Ellis, according to family and authorities. The boy died at the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital.

Two people were being questioned Sunday about the incidents, police said

Capo had recently returned from a recording session in Los Angeles, Hess said.

“He was a good kid. The streets of Chicago is something,” Hess said. “He was murdered. I don’t understand what is going on with all these kids.”

Mario Hess, Chief Keef’s cousin and another member of his rap group who was known as “Big Glo,” was gunned down in West Englewood in April 2014.
