Around 4:15 p.m. Sunday, a gunman shot Hayes in his head, according to police. Officers located his body outside a nearby apartment complex.

Kathy Booker spoke with the Tribune shortly after seeing her son’s body at the site.

“He was a good kid,” Booker said. She added that her son had a vibrant personality and “was very cheerful, joyful, playful. He loved to play with his brothers.”

The 17-year-old was on track to graduate from Banner Academy West High School in June. He had planned to take his mom to his senior prom.

“He loved his mom to death,” Booker commented on her son’s wish. “I think it was sweet of him to want to take me.”

Booker also shared that Hayes wanted to become a police officer after graduating college. He was a fan of math, Chicago rap star Chief Keef, and loved basketball.

“All he do [sic] is go to school and play ball,” Booker said. “They shoot [sic] my baby for no reason.”

Hayes’ grandfather and other family members accompanied Booker to see his body. Hours later, his body was taken to the Cook County morgue.

Hayes’ gunman remains at large.
