West Side Family Pleads For Help Finding Suspect Who Killed 33-Year-Old Travell Miller

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A man taking his daughter to school is shot inside his car on Chicago's West Side.

Police late Thursday were still looking for the suspect. CBS 2's Asal Rezaei spoke with the victim's family.

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.

"That was my boy. That was my son. My first born. And I want anybody that was out there to show us some love,"  said the victim's father Joseph Gilmore. "You can't say nobody saw what happened. It was 7:30 on two main streets."


The family is pleading: If anyone saw something or knows any information about the shooting to contact police.
