Chicago police told DailyMail.com that an 18-year-old man had been shot on the 11400 block of S. Vincennes Ave, on the south side of town.

They said a 25-year-old woman was outside a home at 2:06 am with two men, ages 18 and 31.

A gunman arrived and shot all three. The woman was shot in the leg and both men were shot in the torso.

The gunman then “got into a black sedan and fled,” police said. No arrests have been made.

All three were taken to Christ Hospital, where the 31-year-old is in critical condition and the woman is in fair condition.

Christian was pronounced dead.

“What I’m looking for now are details from the police to find out who killed my brother,” Caldwell said.

Caldwell shared a photo of five of his nine siblings dining together in Chicago in August 2020.

He told Fox News Digital: ‘My little brother never had a chance.’

Caldwell is one of nine, raised by their grandmother because their mother is addicted to crack cocaine.

He said they were “very, very poor” as children.

Christian, the youngest of the nine, loved sports and travel, Caldwell said.

“I was like his father because he never knew his father,” he explained.

‘So my three youngest brothers, I thought, they were my children. Those are my sons, so I took care of them. I supported them financially and still do my family.’

Caldwell said he never thought that a member of his family could become a victim of Chicago's violence

He said they were all aware of the violence in their city: some of his siblings have witnessed violent crimes, including one that was shot at in 2017, and “his best friend died in his arms.”

He said he wants his brother’s killer to examine his conscience.

“If they get out of jail one day — if not for life — they might turn their lives around and give hope to other young men if there’s any hope of rehabilitating them,” Caldwell said.

“I would never want to see street law or violence against the people who even killed my little brother.

“But I do want them to be brought to justice.

“And as a Christian who believes in forgiveness, who believes that there is a second way for people who could do such a thing, I only want justice from my little brother, Christian. That is it.’
