WEST GARFIELD PARK — Dewayne Davis wants to know why his brother Kendre was shot and killed early Wednesday.

Wednesday afternoon Davis, 33, returned to the exact spot in West Garfield Park where his 27-year-old brother's body lay lifeless hours before, searching for answers in his brother's death. He pointed to a spot near the intersection of Springfield Avenue and Congress Parkway just east of the Eisenhower Expy.

"My brother was right there," a clearly distraught Davis said. "I'm still in shock. It's the worst thing. Something you can ever expect."

Police found the 27-year-old man fatally shot in his head when they responded to a call of shots fired in the 3900 block of West Congress Parkway about 1:25 a.m., said Officer Jose Estrada, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.

Kendre Davis was pronounced dead on the scene at 1:41 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

The Davis family was headed to the morgue when they stopped by the street where he was shot. His brother described what he had seen hours before, standing behind police tape.

He said he noticed several nearby police officers arresting two men for drug possession. He peppered them with questions to no avail.

"I know nothing. We're just searching for answers," he said.

Family described Kendre Davis as a faithful father of a 4-year-old boy with another child on the way.

"He was a family man who always wanted to be with his kid," Davis said of his brother.

Police said Kendre Davis had known gang affiliations and that the shooting could've been gang-related.

As of Wednesday morning, no one was in custody.
