They are understandably devastated. The mother said she was on the phone with her son Travell Miller when he was shot around 7:30 Wednesday morning.
It happened on the West Side near Chicago and Sacramento avenues. Police said a man drove up next to Travell Miller’s car, got out and shot Miller multiple times. Police said the suspect fled in a silver car heading south on Sacramento.
Miller, just 33 years old, did not make it. His father saying his gunshot wounds indicated he was shielding his young daughter who was in the back seat at the time of the shooting.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Low 20s Monday Night; Arctic Cold Front Coming Wednesday Morning
