After exchanging several words with a person who was outside the vehicle, the young man was shot several times. On the scene, Tooka was pronounced dead. However, the doctor was able to rush to the closest hospital.
What was the motive for his brutal murder?
He was an associate of the Gangster Disciples of Chicago and was also known for his nickname, Tooka (GD). There is a belief that the death of his through shooting was caused by the gang’s response to the murder of a friend in the Black Disciples (BD) gang, Eddrick Walker (aka Ty), aged 17. He was an ardent follower and a member of BD.
GD gang members assassinated 20-year-old Odee Perry in revenge for Tooka’s death. As per the Daily Mail, Gakirah Barnes, Tooka’s closest friend, might have been the culprit in her death. According to The Mail, Odee Perry was a prominent female gang member.
