Police are appealing to the public to help find those responsible for the slaying of a 20-year-old West Englewood man during a takeover of the intersection at 59th and Western at 3:21 a.m. Sunday, May 5.

The victim--identified as Guillermo Caballero, of the 7000 block of South Winchester--was found by police responding to a “person shot” call. He sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his body and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the shooter was a man or boy who fired directly at the victim’s windshield. No one is in custody.

Further, police said Caballero was "driving in his black Honda Accord when he was caught in the midst of a street takeover" as seen in the photograph below.

Caballero, "after entering the ring of vehicles and pedestrians, was attempting to exit the intersection when two offenders fired
multiple times into the vehicle," police added.

CPD is requesting that anyone with information, photographs or video footage of the street takeover and the shooting to contact Area 1 detectives at (312) 747-8380 or by email to Area 1 Detective Reitz at steven.reitz@chicagopolice.org.
