CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Fox News political analyst said his brother was killed in a shooting on Chicago's South Side Friday morning.

"I am completely heartbroken. My family, they are shattered," said Gianno Caldwell.

Chicago police said the shooting occurred at 2:06 a.m. in the 11400-block of South Vincennes Avenue in the Morgan Park neighborhood.

25 shot, 5 killed, including 5-month-old girl, in weekend violence, police say

Police said three men were with a group of people when someone fired shots and fled the scene in a black sedan.

Two men, ages 18 and 25, were killed and another was critically wounded.

Caldwell, a political analyst for Fox News, said his brother, 18-year-old Christian, was killed in the shooting.

"Horrific," Caldwell said. "I'm going to tell you, I would rather not be sitting here doing this interview. I would rather be with my family consoling them but there is four men, Black offenders, who jumped out of an SUV with dreads who need to be captured and prosecuted."

Caldwell said he helped raise Christian.

"He was a comedian, kind of like his big brother, me. He was fun to be around. Just a loving kid, loved to travel," he recalled. "He would call me. I was kind of like his father. He never knew his father so when it came to his needs - financial, clothes - I was the one to provide that in addition to my grandmother."

Chicago are still looking for the shooters.

"The reason I'm even doing press this week is to get the word out to as many people as possible so my brother Christian can have justice. I want his life to mean something," Caldwell said.
