Three children and an adult were killed early this morning in Chicago’s Marquette Park neighborhood, and a relative from Madison, Wis., whom police believe was the shooter was later taken into custody.
Sources said the shooter told police “Allah” had told him to kill his family.
And he told the officer who arrested him, “Too bad I ran out of bullets,” a source told the Chicago Sun-Times.
The dead included a woman believed to be the pregnant wife of the shooter; 16-year-old Keyshai Fields, who was four months pregnant; a 3-year-old girl named Keleasha Larry; and a 7-month-old boy who was the shooter’s son, according to law enforcement officials and family members.
Family members said the dead 7-month-old was named Jihad.
