A father of three who was fatally shot at the Metra station in Waukegan on the day of his daughter’s birthday was known for being family-oriented and caring, his girlfriend said.

An autopsy performed Monday showed Xzavier Booker, 36, of Zion, died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek.

The Waukegan Police Department responded around 3:40 a.m. Sunday to the Metra station, 95 North Spring Street, for a report of a shooting.

Police officers arrived and reported finding a victim who had been shot in the parking lot, according to fire department radio traffic.

The male victim, later identified as Booker, suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his body, including his chest and neck.

Police requested the Waukegan Fire Department to the scene.

Paramedics arrived and confirmed Booker was dead at the scene from his injuries, Banek said.

Breana Wesley, who is Booker’s girlfriend and mother to his young daughter, said her boyfriend’s life was “senselessly taken away.”

“Xzavier was known to be caring, loving, and family oriented. Xzavier loved producing music, singing songs, roller skating every Sunday and riding his bike,” Wesley said.

“The love and impact he leaves in our lives will forever be memorized. Xzavier was loved and cherished by a lot of friends and family who loved him dearly,” she added.

The Waukegan Police Department told Lake and McHenry County Scanner on Monday that information on the case was not immediately available for release.

The department has still not released information on the case as of Wednesday.

Wesley said she is unsure what led to the shooting. She said the location is a common place where people meet up to socialize.

“Unfortunately he was at the wrong place wrong time, and now here we are,” Wesley said.

Jynniah Harris, who is Booker’s sister-in-law, said her brother-in-law’s life was “stripped away from many people” who love him.

Harris called Booker an “amazing father” to his three children and said he had a niche for music.

“He loved playing the piano with his daughter and writing songs with and for my sister. His need for speed on his bike was impeccable – he loved the thrill riding with his biker crew,” Harris said.

“Lastly he was a smooth skating machine, every Sunday you’d find him at the skating rink grooving to the sounds of the beat! He was so humble and an all around good man,” she added.

Harris said Booker’s life was “taken away with no regard, murdered,” leaving behind a grieving family.

A GoFundMe account created by the family to help raise money for unexpected expenses has raised over $500 so far with a $20,000 goal.
