Mom of 6 fatally shot in the same spot her teen son was murdered in just three days before in police-defunded Chicago

CHICAGO, IL- On Wednesday, November 24th, the day before Thanksgiving, a mother of six was gunned down in the same exact spot that her 14-year-old son was murdered just three days prior.

The mother, identified as 31-year-old Delisa Tucker, was fatally shot in the chest while visiting a memorial set up for her teenage son, Kevin Tinker Jr., who was murdered on Sunday, November 21st.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, Tucker was just steps away from the memorial getting ready to light a candle when there was gunfire. Pastor Donovan Price, who said he consoled Tucker at a vigil for her son on the evening of his death, said:

“It’s just sad that this whole family, basically, to be killed over time. I’m devastated.”

As of this writing, police have not confirmed if the two shootings are in any way connected and no one has been arrested. Authorities said that Tinker was fatally shot in the 200 block of West 110th place, off of Wentworth Avenue in Roseland. 

Tinker’s father, Kevin Tinker Sr., said that his son was not in a gang and that the violence had to be random, adding:

“Some violence found him. He was a good kid. He didn’t gang bang. Played basketball. Played on his phone a lot. He liked to play games. He was not a gangbanger at all. He stayed in the house most of the time, with his little brothers and sisters.”

Tinker Jr., was shot a dozen times and pronounced dead at the scene. At the time Tinker Jr., was gunned down, he was standing outside a home that had been targeted earlier in the day. Police have yet to say if they believe Kevin was also targeted. A woman, who is a close family friend and asked not to be named, said:

“They were not gang-banging. Kevin was a quiet boy. He was just starting to get out of his shell.”

Tucker’s body was found lying on the sidewalk after police were responding to a ShotSpotter alert before 12:30 a.m. on November 24th. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead. Police said they have not found anyone along the street who witnessed the shooting of Tucker.

Family friend Michelle Tharpe said:

“We need justice for Delisa and Kevin. That’s all we want.”

Tucker leaves behind five children between the ages of four and 15. Her loved ones have set up a GoFundMe page for help with funeral expenses and to provide for her children. Tharpe said:

“If you all could, just please donate for my friend and her kids. They didn’t deserve this.”

According to reports, Roseland is one of the deadliest neighborhoods in Chicago, despite “stepped-up” efforts by City Hall within the last year to curb violence. Roseland and 14 other community areas have long struggled with guns and gangs.

Data shows that Roseland has seen 26 shooting deaths so far in 2021, putting it on track to have a deadlier year than 2020. The Calumet police district, which includes Roseland, has recorded at least 61 homicides this year, which is 49 percent more than this time in 2020 and shootings are up 31 percent.

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers. 

And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

Heartbroken mom goes door to door searching for person who shot and killed her 4-year-old in Chicago

October 31st, 2021

CHICAGO, IL – In a tragic and sickening case, a mother seeks answers in the case of her 4-year-old child’s shooting death. 

In her search for answers, the mother is going door-to-door.

The grieving mother, Angela Gregg, is trying to find anyone who can point her in the direction of who shot and killed her young child, Mychal Moultry, who died at 65th Street and South Ellis Avenue in September. 

Gregg, in speaking of those responsible for her son’s death, said:

“There’s no safe place that they can hide.”

Gregg’s unbearable grief started in September when her son was getting his hair braided with his father when bullets came whizzing into the home, striking her son twice in the head.  Gregg said:

“They put two bullets in his head.  They are animals.  They are demons.  They are disgraceful.  They are really out here killing kids.  My child.  He was my only son.”

Rescue personnel who responded to the scene rushed her young son to the hospital in an attempt to save his life.  For two days, she and Moultry’s father held onto hope that he would pull through.  Gregg said:

“I had so much faith my baby was going to make it.  He was still breathing when he left here.  He took two bullets in his brain and he was still breathing.”

What makes matters worse is that Gregg and her son do not even live in Chicago.  They were simply there from Alabama visiting her son’s father.   

Since the day of her beloved son’s death, she has only returned home once.  The rest of the time she is back in Chicago hitting the streets trying to find out who killed her son, and why.  She said:

“I just want them [the shooters] to know that I’m coming for you, and I’m not gonna stop looking for you.  I have nothing else to do now because of you.”

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the Chicago Police Department are also seeking answers.  Lightfoot, in speaking about the case, said:

“The shooters always talk.  People always have information about what happened.  People are afraid to step up and say what happened, but we need you to overcome your fear.”

The Chicago Police Department wants the community to know that they can provide anonymous information to them regarding this investigation. 

Additionally, there is a $25,000 reward that is being offered to anyone with information that can lead to the arrest and successful prosecution of the person or persons involved.

While the Chicago Police Department is not releasing many aspects of their investigation, they have released surveillance video footage showing persons of interest in the case.  Additionally, there is also footage that shows a vehicle that may be connected.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown has said that they do not believe that Moultry’s family were the intended target of the shots that were fired that night. 

Brown claims that they do know who the intended targets were and the gangs that were involved.  Even though that much is known, the Chicago Police Department still does not know who exactly pulled the trigger.

Gregg has said that her fight will not end until those responsible have been identified and arrested.  She said:

“Every day I get up and I fight, and every day that I have to be reminded of how many days it is, it gets harder. But I know that I can’t take my foot off the gas, because as soon as I take my foot off the gas, that’s when the people who killed my son get the most comfortable. 

And I definitely don’t want them to be comfortable. I want them to be as uncomfortable as they have made me and my family.”

Felon yelled “you will die” after shooting police officer in the face in police-defunded Chicago

CHICAGO, ILL- Another day in Chicago, another shooting in America’s most dangerous city. Sadly, this time one of our own was the victim. Chicago police told Fox News that a city police officer was shot in the face during a struggle last week.

 

Jovan McPherson, 23, was charged with attempted murder and six other felonies, including aggravated battery of a peace officer, unlawful use of a weapon, kidnapping while armed with a firearm, aggravated unlawful restraint, and resisting/obstructing, they said in a statement.

Knowing district attorney Kim Foxx, he’ll probably be out on bond in no time.

Chicago PD Superintendent David O. Brown said McPherson’s bond hearing was to be held later in the day on Tuesday last week.

“We did our job. It’s the court’s turn now,” he wrote.

McPherson, a felon (shocker) who was on probation (shocker) was confronted by police after he threatened a woman and held her at gunpoint, the Chicago Sun-Times said. He then shot an officer in the face, telling him “you will die” after doing so.

The shooting occurred at a busy mall in Lincoln Park.

The officer, who was not identified, was shot when he and another officer confronted McPherson after the woman he was with asked for help, according to prosecutors.

The police officer was treated and released from Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Prosecutors said the woman, 21, picked him up in Elgin, Illinois so they could run an errand in the city. When the woman received a call from the father of her child, McPherson got upset, displayed a handgun, and took her cellphone. He continued holding the gun to her side and threatened to kill her as they drove into the city.

As they were driving on Interstate 90/94 toward downtown Chicago, McPherson grabbed the steering wheel and forced her to exit the highway. The woman drove into the strip mall where she parked and went into the Ulta Beauty store on W. North Avenue.

It was inside the store the woman asked a store employee for help, then McPherson went inside and started a disturbance, prosecutors said.

Another store employee was able to flag down two Chicago PD officers who were in the shopping center’s parking lot.

McPherson exited the store, however when one of the officers followed him out, McPherson pulled the officer’s face mask off, shoved him, put him in a “bear hug” and returned inside the store. Both officers followed McPherson into the store trying to calm him down, however he went outside and returned to the woman’s car.

“I got a gun too,” McPherson told one of the officers while sitting in the car.

One of the officers asked where the gun was, whereby McPherson challenged him to a fight, while telling him “It was a good gun too.”

McPherson then brandished the gun, which was under his legs and a struggle ensued, with the officer trying to disarm him. The gun was then fired by McPherson, striking the officer in the cheek.

The police officer’s body camera recorded McPherson shouting “you will die” after he fired a second shot, which missed the officer. He eventually disarmed McPherson as other officers arrived on the scene.

McPherson then tried to claim officers had fired at him first, however only the two shell casings were recovered at the scene and it was determined neither officer had fired their weapons, according to prosecutors.

One assistant public defender amazingly claimed that McPherson may have “accidentally” fired the shot during the struggle over the weapon, however the judge, Mary Marubio wasn’t buying it given his recorded statements, which clearly showed an intent to shoot the officer.

“Accidentally?” Right there is the issue with the Cook County District Attorney’s Office.

Marubio ordered McPherson held without bail for attempted murder and the other charges.

McPherson was already on probation in two separate cases—drug possession and fleeing and eluding arrest—in Kane County at the time of the shooting, prosecutors said.

He is unemployed and has lived in Kane County his entire life, his attorney said. He is due back in court Nov. 9.
