5 dead and 23 wounded by gun wheeling monkey

A 16-year-old girl and three other people were killed and at least 21 others wounded Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning across the city, from the Near North Side west to the Austin neighborhood and as far south as 107th Street.

That brought the weekend toll from shootings in the city so far to five people dead and at least 28 wounded. From Friday evening into Saturday morning, 10 people had been shot, one of them fatally.

The girl was shot three times in the West Englewood nighborhood Saturday evening. The other three who died in overnight violence included one of three people shot on the street in Cragin, a woman shot in a van in Chatham and a man shot while sitting in a car in North Austin.

The girl was identified as 16-year-old Shakaki Asphy, of the 4200 block of South Vincennes Avenue, by the Cook County medical examiner's office.

The girl had no gang affiliations and no arrest history, according to police. She and a 21-year-old man were shot about 7 p.m. Saturday in the 2000 block of West 70th Place in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, police said.

The girl was shot in the abdomen and taken in serious-to-critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where she died at 3:47 a.m. Sunday morning.

Angel Colon and his father Jesus were dozing off when the "pop, pop, pop, pop" of gunfire rang out just 50 feet from their front steps in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood early this morning.

The two went outside their home and watched as evidence technicians took photos and detectives checked neighboring homes for bullet holes in the 2300 block of North Laramie Avenue. Police had already found a target of those bullets: Jaime Ocampo, one of four people killed in separate shootings overnight.

Angel Colon said he heard 10 to 15 shots shortly after 12:30 a.m. Then police sirens minutes later.

Blue lights reflected off the windows of two- and three-flats as police cars parked at each end of the crime scene blocked off Laramie Avenue between Medill and Fullerton avenues. Unmarked cars sat nearby, next to a forensic evidence truck.

A green Toyota Corolla had its front driver side window shot out, and there was a bullet hole in its back window. Evidence markers were set next to eight bullet casings.

Ocampo, 32, was shot on the porch of a three-flat apartment building.

Ocampo's family gathered on the north end of the crime scene and stood watching police in the rain. They couldn't get close but feared the body slouched near the door was their relative. Then someone called Ocampo's mother from her son's phone to tell her that her son had been shot.

"We don't even know who called," said Ocampo's sister Faviola Ocampo, 26.

Police told the family that Ocampo, of the 3100 block of North Natchez Avenue, was shot after an argument with another man, Faviola Ocampo said. A 43-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man were also shot but their wounds were not serious, police said.

Ocampo lived with his mother and worked at a factory with his father.

Ocampo was in a gang when he was younger, his family said, and his mother warned him to stop hanging out with the same people. "We moved, and our mom told him, 'Don't hang around them, all you'll get is trouble,' " said a relative.

Faviola Ocampo consoled her sister Lorena, who was holding a small child in pink shirt while a detective talked to them around 4 a.m. Sunday. Police told them they'd have to go to the morgue later in the morning.

"Do you know how long that is for a mother?" asked a relative, who didn't want to be identified.

The family was preparing to leave a short time later to get some sleep before heading to the Cook County medical examiner's office, Faviola Ocampo said.

Ocampo had three children who are between 12 and 14 years old and who are from two relationships and live with their mothers.

"They don't even know,” Faviola Ocampo said. "It's going to be hard to tell them."

Ocampo was hoping to visit his oldest child, a daughter, in California. He communicated with her on Facebook and spoke with her on the phone, Faviola Ocampo said, and last saw the child when she was an infant.

"He was really hoping to see her," she said, holding back tears. "He'll never get to see her again."
