Police did not say whether it was linked to the shooting.
Delisa Tucker was just a few steps away from her son’s memorial Wednesday morning when she died.
“While she was lighting a candle for her son, she was killed,” wrote Michelle Tharp, a family friend, on the GoFundMe page to help pay for the family’s funeral. “This world is very cold.”
Police responded to a shotspot alert around 12:15 a.m. and found 31-year-old Tucker sleeping on the sidewalk in the 200 block of West 110th. He was taken to Roseland Hospital and pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
He said no one was seen firing on the block, and no one was arrested in connection with the attack or his son.
On Sunday, her son was shot several times at the same location and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
“He was a cool guy,” Tharp wrote on the GoFundMe page. “Lil Kevin, relax well.”
The CPD has stated that the investigation into both the shootings is ongoing. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago police declined to comment on whether it was linked to the shooting.
According to Tharpe, Tucker left five other children behind.
According to CPD crime statistics, shootings have increased in Chicago this year. As of November 8, there were 3,105 incidents in 2021, an increase of 10% compared to 2020 and 66% compared to 2019.
