Suspect Accused Of Killing Baby Calmly Walked To Car After Capo Shooting



A South Side Chicago man accused of killing 13-month-old Dillan Harris in a hit-and-run accident Saturday, July 11 was allegedly observed “calmly walking” to his Toyota soon after Capo was shot in the South Shore neighborhood, according to the Chicago Tribune.

An off-duty Department of Aviation police officer reportedly spotted 21-year-old Antoine Watkins and followed him for several blocks and called in the license plate number to police.

Watkins then led police on a high-speed chase after he was momentarily stopped and reached up to 70 mph in a 30 mph zone. He ran four red lights before losing control of his vehicle and hitting baby Dillan.

Watkins, 21, was charged with murder and attempting to elude police. A Cook County judge ordered him held without bail.

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.”
