South Side Chicago Man Charged With Killing Baby After Fleeing Capo Murder Scene



A South Side Chicago man was charged with murder after allegedly being the driver in the July 11 hit-and-run death of a 13-month-old boy, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Antoine Watkins, 21, was reportedly charged with murder and attempting to elude police after he allegedly struck baby Dillan Harris as he sat in a stroller with his mom and two older sisters. Watkins was also charged with not having a driver’s license and driving without insurance, according to DNAinfo.com

He was expected to appear in bond court Monday afternoon, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Baby Dillan was headed to the beach his family the day of his death.

“It happened in the blink of an eye,” Dillan’s mother told the Sun Times. “When I looked up, they were just there. I tried my best to save my baby.”

When she saw the stroller had been hit, she reportedly said, “I knew he was gone.”

Following the incident, witnesses who lent their assistance to the mother pulled the stroller off of the child to discover him lying in a fetal position with his butt up in the air, according to ABC 7 Chicago.

“I never imagined this would happen,” she told the Tribune. “… My son gone so soon.”

Watkins is alleged to have been involved in the drive-by shooting of Glo Gang rapper Capo prior to the crash. Shocking footage surfaced on the net showing the “G.L.O.N.L. 2” rapper taking his last breaths before being taken to Northwestern Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
