Chicago Teen, DeAndre Baber, Murdered After Car Gets Stuck In Wrong Neighborhood

An 18-year-old teen set to graduate from high school this spring was shot dead in a senseless act of violence in South Side Chicago.

DeAndre Baber was riding as a passenger in his brother’s mini van when it got stuck in a pothole near South Elizabeth and West 81st streets in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

A party bus of area gang members approached Baber and other passengers as they were working to push the vehicle out of the pothole.

The gang members questioned Baber and passengers’ gang affiliations. The confrontation grew more hostile after the gang members broke the windows of the van, robbed Baber and passengers and took the keys to the van, according to the Sun Times.

When authorities arrived, gang members fled into nearby residences. Baber and passengers were taken home by police.

Baber retrieved another set of keys from his home and returned to the location of the van to have another attempt at moving it.

Baber was shot in the back of the head during his efforts. He died at the scene.

Brion M. Dowdell was identified by witnesses as the alleged shooter. He was arrested and charged with one count of first-degree murder.

Baber attended Bogan Computer Technical High School.
