Killed – Jernale Richardson (Chicago, IL)

male

Jernale Richardson was found shot to death in the Austin neighborhood early Friday.

Richardson, 36, was found about 3:50 a.m. in the 5900 block of West Midway Park with gunshot wounds to the chest and head, authorities said.

Richardson, of the 5100 block of West Ohio Street, was dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Area North detectives are investigating.

An Austin neighborhood man has been charged with first-degree murder after prosecutors said he shot and killed the father of his girlfriend’s child.

Shaughnessy Simms Jr., 31, of the 5900 block of West Midway Park, was ordered held without bail Sunday by Cook County Judge James Brown.

Assistant State’s Attorney Kingsley Sawyers said Simms and his girlfriend began to argue Friday at Simms’ home because he’d been dating other women. The argument went on for a couple of hours, Sawyers said.

Eventually he said the girlfriend went to her room and got on the phone, speaking to Jermane Richardson, the father of her 7-year-old child.

Richardson showed up at the residence 45 minutes later and knocked on the door, the prosecutor said. Simm’s girlfriend came out of her room to speak to Richardson, who was at the bottom of a set of stairs.

A witness later saw Simms come out of his room with a “big gun,” Sawyers said, and he began to argue with Richardson as the girlfriend tried to intervene.

Eventually Richardson began to walk up the stairs toward Simms, Sawyers said, but Simms shot him once in the arm. Then, after Richardson fell to the ground in a seated position, the prosecutor said Simms stood over him and shot him two more times, once in the head.

Killed – Pregnant Teen – Eva Casara (Chicago, IL)

Eva Casara2

CHICAGO – A third suspect in the Christmas Day murder of a pregnant Chicago teen has been charged after surrendering Monday, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

Darius D. Marshall, 19, of Dolton, Ill., is due in court Thursday to face charges of murder and attempted armed robbery. His attorney, Stuart Goldberg, told the Sun-Times his client will plead not guilty.

Marshall turned himself in after his brothers, a 16-year-old boy and 21-year-old Diante Coakley, were charged with the murder of Eva Casara, 17, over the weekend. Prosecutors say Casara was shot in the back of the head during a botched robbery in which she was allegedly participating Dec. 25. She was reportedly 26 weeks pregnant with the child of the 16-year-old suspect, who was her boyfriend.

Prosecutors have said Casara plotted with her boyfriend, his brother Coakley and another unnamed brother to commit a robbery, reports the Sun-Times. They believe Coakley fired the fatal shot, though they say Casara wasn’t the intended target.

Casara was shot in the back of the head on Wednesday. Her body was found in a residential area in Dolton around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, but police believe the shooting occurred somewhere else. Casara was taken to the hospital, where doctors saved her baby but she died.

“We believe we found the actual location where this young lady was shot at,” Dolton Police Chief John Franklin said. “It was suspected (Wednesday) night that she was not actually shot at 1102, that she was placed there. And members of the Crime Task Force have found some shell casings in the 15200 South Dorchester where we believe the actual shooting did occur there.”

Killed – Leroy Griffin (Chicago, IL)

male

Leroy Griffin was fatally shot Saturday night in the Chatham neighborhood.

Griffin, 18, was in the 7900 block of South Lafayette Avenue when an SUV approached about 7 p.m. Saturday, authorities said. Several people got out of the SUV and opened fire — striking Griffin in the head.

Griffin, of the 7500 block of South Langley Avenue, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 7:20 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A third man was charged Sunday in the December 2013 slaying of Leroy Griffin, who was beaten then shot in the head by rival gang members outside a Chatham gas station.

Steven Blanchard, 26, who was charged with first-degree murder, is accused of being the triggerman who killed Griffin. He was ordered held without bail during a brief appearance before Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil.

Blanchard was in an SUV with six other people on Dec. 21, 2013, when someone spotted Griffin, 19, and a friend outside a gas station near the 7900 block of South Lafayette Avenue, according to authorities.

The group spilled out of the SUV and started beating Griffin, Assistant State’s Attorney LaShunda Cooperwood said. Meanwhile, Blanchard chased after Griffin’s friend, who sprinted away from the gas station. Blanchard fired shots at the friend but headed back to the gas station when he didn’t hit him.

As Blanchard walked back to join his group, he saw Griffin running toward him, Cooperwood said. He took aim and fired a single shot, striking Griffin in the head.

Blanchard, of the 1500 block of East 72nd Street, then rejoined the group, which fled in the SUV, authorities said.

Griffin, of the 7500 block of South Langley Avenue, was pronounced dead a short time later, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Lamont Jackson, 24, and Louis Smith, 25, also were charged with murder in Griffin’s death in December 2014.

Parts of the attack were captured by surveillance cameras, though the shooting itself was not, prosecutors said.

Blanchard confessed to shooting Griffin when he was questioned, prosecutors said.

Double Murder – Killed – Eric Davis (Chicago, IL)

Eric Davis1

CHICAGO (CBS) — Parishioners at St. Phillip Neri Church are mourning the death of a mentor and deacon.

Willie Cooper, 74, was found shot to death early this morning in the South Shore neighborhood.

Deacon Cooper was found in a vehicle with multiple gunshot wounds about 4:45 a.m. in the 7000 block of South East End Avenue, according to police news affairs.

Cooper worked at the Aries Bus Co., and was on his way to work, following his usual routine, according to his friend, Steve Herron.

He pulled up to pick up Herron, who also is Cooper’s co-worker.
That’s when Cooper was ambushed by a group of men and gunned down inside his car.

Herron told CBS 2’s Courtney Gousman that he was just about to walk out of his home and jump into the car when he heard gunshots.

In the most recent shooting, 74-year-old Willy Cooper, a deacon at St. Phillip Neri Church, was found fatally shot inside a vehicle in the 7000 block of South East End Avenue, CBS Chicago reports.

Tattooed across the throat of Mark A. Hall, one of two men accused of killing a deacon and a blues musician during botched robberies last December, is the phrase: “God 4 Gives I Don’t.”

On Sunday, it was Cook County Judge Adam Bourgeois’ turn to be unforgiving. With a dismissive nod, Bourgeois ordered Hall held without bail as he awaits trial. His co-defendant, Devin Aldridge, was ordered held without bond on Saturday.

Hall and Aldridge, both 23, were charged with two counts each of first-degree murder for the early morning killings of deacon Willie Cooper and musician Eric “Guitar” Davis on Dec. 19, 2013, in the South Shore neighborhood, authorities said.

Cooper and Davis were shot to death within 40 minutes just blocks from each other, Assistant State’s Attorney Luz Toledo said in court.

In both cases, the men were in their vehicles waiting to pick up a friend, prosecutors said. Each tried to speed away to avoid getting robbed by Aldridge and Hall, prosecutors alleged. Instead, they both died in a hail of 9 mm bullets that were traced to the same handgun, according to prosecutors.

Cooper, 74, was shot at 4:44 a.m. in the 7000 block of South East End Avenue. Davis, 41, was sitting in his vehicle in the 6700 block of South East End about 5:20 a.m. when he was shot, police said.

Davis, of the 14200 block of South Eggleston in Riverdale, and Cooper, of the 6800 block of South Crandon, were dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Willie Cooper, 74, a retired CTA driver and deacon, was shot to death around 4:45 a.m., after he pulled up in the 7000 Block of South East End Avenue and was waiting to give a friend a ride to work.

Hall walked up to the drivers’ side. Aldridge walked up to the passengers’ side, and the two demanded money, Assistant State’s Attorney Luz Toledo said in court.

When Cooper began to drive away, Hall shot at him at least 10 times, striking him multiple times and killing him. The victims fled after Cooper crashed into a nearby fence and slumped over the wheel, Toledo said. Cooper suffered wounds to the shoulder, bicep, ear and elbow.

Around 5:20 a.m., in the 6700 block of South East End Avenue, the men approached Eric “Guitar” Davis, 43, who was also sitting in his parked car waiting to pick up a friend, when the men approached him on the driver’s side and demanded money.

When he tried to drive away, he was shot at multiple times and struck in the back, neck and his right inner palm, Toledo said in court. Davis was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago.

Double Shooting – Killed – Eric M. Anderson (Chicago, IL)

Eric M. Anderson

After allegedly harassing his ex-girlfriend for weeks, a man threatened the woman and her mother with a gun in a Northwest suburban home, shot a police officer who tried to intervene and was then fatally shot by police, authorities said.

A firefighter who by chance was eating dinner near the scene in Arlington Heights on Thursday night helped save the life of Officer Michael McEvoy, police said.

After the 52-year-old officer was dragged from the home with a wound to the chin area, fire Deputy Chief Ken Koeppen, who had come outside after seeing emergency lights, helped stanch the bleeding.

McEvoy, a 24-year veteran, was listed in critical but stable condition at a hospital Friday and was expected to recover, authorities said.

“Ken Koeppen was a hero in all this,” said Arlington Heights police Cmdr. Andrew Whowell. “It was an act of God that he was (there).”

The gunfire capped a span of weeks in which the alleged gunman, Eric M. Anderson, 41, of Niles, persistently harassed a woman who had broken up with him in late November, according to court records. Less than a week before he died, Anderson was charged with sending harassing emails to his 39-year-old ex-girlfriend even though police had warned him not to contact her, court records show. He was released on bond after his arrest Sunday, police said.

A judge signed an emergency order of protection against him Monday, ordering Anderson to stay away from his ex-girlfriend.

“I feel that he may still try and contact me after this,” the woman wrote in her petition for the order. “I just want him to leave me alone.”

Around 7 p.m. Thursday, McEvoy and three other officers responded to a report of a man with a gun at a town house in the 1900 block of Windham Court. Anderson’s ex-girlfriend was at the home visiting her mother, who had called police and then escaped unhurt, Whowell said.

McEvoy was the first officer to enter the house and was shot once, Whowell said. A fellow officer dragged him from the house, police said.

About two hours into the standoff, Anderson and the woman left the house for an attached garage, Whowell said, and officers confronted him. The woman ran away as Anderson pointed his gun at officers, who shot him multiple times, Whowell said.

Anderson was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights and was pronounced dead at 11:02 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Killed – Cayetano Sandoval (Chicago, IL)

Cayetano Sandoval

A 68-year-old man was shot to death during an attempted robbery in the Logan Square neighborhood early Thursday.

Cayetano Sandoval was shot in the chest multiple times in the 1900 block of North Spaulding Avenue about 1:50 a.m., authorities said.

Witnesses in a nearby bar told officers that two people tried to rob Sandoval, police said. One of the robbers knocked him to the ground, then the other shot him multiple times.

Both robbers ran off after the shooting, police said.

Sandoval, of the 1600 block of West Ontario Street, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Police said he was shot as many as five times.

An alleged gang member has been charged with murder after prosecutors said him and a friend fatally shot a 68-year-old man during a 2013 robbery in the Logan Square neighborhood.

Joshua Johnson, 23, was nabbed at the Rolling Meadows courthouse on Friday when he appeared for an unrelated case.

He now also faces first-degree murder charges for the Dec. 12, 2013, shooting death of Cayetano Sandoval in the 1900 block of North Spaulding Avenue.

Prosecutors said Sandoval had just returned home from his job at a bakery when Johnson and another man approached him after he parked his van about 2 a.m.

Johnson demanded Sandoval give them money and began hitting him. Johnson held Sandoval down and the other man took out a gun and opened fire, prosecutors said.

Sandoval was shot five times and died at the scene, authorities said.

Mario Ortega, 20; and Joshua Johnson, 23, approached Sandoval after he parked his car in the 1900 block of North Spaulding Avenue around 2 a.m. on Dec. 12, 2013, coming home from his job at a bakery, according to Cook County court documents. Prosecutors said Ortega, also known as “King Krazy,” and Johnson are both Latin Kings.

A 27-year-old man was fatally shot while stepping into a vehicle in the Lawndale neighborhood Saturday afternoon, police said.

Two men carrying handguns approached the man as he was entering a vehicle in the 3100 block of West Arthington Street about 12:30 p.m., police said.

One of the men opened fire, striking the 27-year-old in the chest, police said.

The man was identified as Gentilis Williamson, of the 3100 block of West Arthington Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was declared dead at 1:07 p.m. at Mount Sinai Hospital.

A parolee was ordered held on $600,000 bond Wednesday, accused in an East Garfield Park shooting in November in which a man was fatally shot in front of his father.

Harbin, 23, of the 6600 block of South Perry Avenue, was charged with first-degree murder, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said.

The second suspect, who has not yet been arrested, said something to Williamson before firing three shots at him, Dibler said.

Double Shooting – Killed – LaChris Hendricks (Chicago, IL)

male

LaChris Hendricks was killed during an alleged shootout in the East Garfield Park neighborhood early Monday on the West Side.

Police believe Hendricks and a 30-year-old man shot each other during an exchange of gunfire about 12:15 am. Monday in the 2900 block of West Jackson Boulevard.

Officers found Hendricks, 32, in the street near South Sacramento Boulevard and West Adams Street, authorities said. He was shot in the chest, arm and hand, police said.

Paramedics took Hendricks to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 3:23 a.m. Monday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy confirmed Hendricks, of the 1200 block of West 48th Court in Cicero, died from multiple gunshot wounds.

The man in the vehicle was shot in the right leg and was driven to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said. He has not yet been charged for the shooting.

Officers recovered a weapon in the 2900 block of West Adams Street, police said.

Jackie Stiffend has been charged with murder for his alleged role in a retaliation robbery last year that left accomplice LaChris Hendricks dead, prosecutors said.

Stiffend, 26, appeared before Judge Peggy Chiampas on Monday dressed in a tan plaid shirt and gray jeans. He was ordered held on $250,000 bond and will be back in court April 7.

The chain of events started when four people robbed Jackie Stiffend, LaChris Hendricks and two others of money and jewelry on Nov. 24, 2013, at a liquor store near North Kedzie Avenue and West Lake Street, Assistant State’s Attorney Dan Griffin said.

Stiffend believed he knew where the people who robbed him hung out and devised a plan for the group to get their belongings back, Griffin said. The robbery victims allegedly went back to Stiffend’s home and retrieved two firearms.

Just after midnight Nov. 25, the robbery victims went to the 2900 block of West Jackson Boulevard and planned to shoot the people who they believed had robbed them earlier and take their belongings back, Griffin said.

The group walked up to a white car with four people inside they believed had robbed them earlier and Stiffend and Hendricks fired multiple shots at the vehicle, Griffin said. A passenger in the car was shot in the buttocks and hamstring and the vehicle sped away.

During the ambush, Hendricks was shot in the chest, Griffin said. It was unclear if somebody inside the car or Stiffend shot Hendricks.

Hendricks, of the 1200 block of 48th Court in Cicero, died at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The wounded occupant of the car, 30, was driven to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was treated for his wounds, authorities said.

Police recovered a 9 mm handgun next to Hendricks body and found both 9 mm and 40 mm shell casings on the street, Griffin said.

Jackie Stiffend has been charged with murder for his alleged role in a retaliation robbery last year that left accomplice LaChris Hendricks dead, prosecutors said.

Stiffend, 26, appeared before Judge Peggy Chiampas on Monday dressed in a tan plaid shirt and gray jeans. He was ordered held on $250,000 bond and will be back in court April 7.

The chain of events started when four people robbed Jackie Stiffend, LaChris Hendricks and two others of money and jewelry on Nov. 24, 2013, at a liquor store near North Kedzie Avenue and West Lake Street, Assistant State’s Attorney Dan Griffin said.

Stiffend believed he knew where the people who robbed him hung out and devised a plan for the group to get their belongings back, Griffin said. The robbery victims allegedly went back to Stiffend’s home and retrieved two firearms.

Just after midnight Nov. 25, the robbery victims went to the 2900 block of West Jackson Boulevard and planned to shoot the people who they believed had robbed them earlier and take their belongings back, Griffin said.

The group walked up to a white car with four people inside they believed had robbed them earlier and Stiffend and Hendricks fired multiple shots at the vehicle, Griffin said. A passenger in the car was shot in the buttocks and hamstring and the vehicle sped away.

During the ambush, Hendricks was shot in the chest, Griffin said. It was unclear if somebody inside the car or Stiffend shot Hendricks.

Hendricks, of the 1200 block of 48th Court in Cicero, died at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The wounded occupant of the car, 30, was driven to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was treated for his wounds, authorities said.

Police recovered a 9 mm handgun next to Hendricks body and found both 9 mm and 40 mm shell casings on the street, Griffin said.

Killed – Ibrinzon Gonzalez (Chicago, IL)

male

A man who was charged in connection with a fatal shooting earlier this week outside a McDonald’s restaurant in the Lincoln Square neighborhood was ordered held without bail this afternoon.

Cordero H. Sims, 26, of Naperville, was charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 25-year-old Ibrinzon Gonzalez.

Gonzalez was found fatally shot just after 7 p.m. Monday in a parking lot outside the restaurant, which is in the 4900 block of North Lincoln Avenue.

Prosecutors said today that Sims and two other individuals had arranged to have a woman set up a drug deal between them and Gonzalez. The woman knew both parties, prosecutors said, and ordered a pound of marijuana for Sims. Then text messages were exchanged between her and Gonzalez about the price, time and location of the drug deal, said prosecutors.

Sims and two of his friends picked up the woman in an SUV. The woman then handed a sample of the cannabis to one of Sims’ friends; he looked it over before handing it to Sims in the front passenger seat, said prosecutors. That person also handed Sims a stack of money that was supposed to be $4,500, but it was only $462 in one-dollar bills. The group had wrapped the cash in plastic to try and trick the woman, said prosecutors.

After handing the money to Sims, Sims then wrapped the cash in a brown plastic bag, exited the SUV and walked over to a BMW that was occupied by Gonzalez and a 24-year-old man, said prosecutors.

Sims got inside the back of the BMW and asked the two men if he could see the entire pound of marijuana because he did not want to be ripped off. Gonzalez assured Sims the weight was correct and started to unwrap the package of marijuana. But Gonzalez wanted to make sure he was getting the full payment for the marijuana so Sims placed the money in the BMW’s center console, said prosecutors.

As soon as Gonzalez reached for the money, Sims pulled out a handgun. Gonzalez and the 24-year-old man tried to grab the gun from Sims, but Sims shot Gonzalez three times in the back of the head and grabbed the marijuana, said prosecutors.

The other man then tried to wrestle the gun away from Sims and pleaded with Sims not to kill him. He eventually got out of the BMW and tried to flee.

The woman who set up the drug deal, meanwhile, had jumped out of the SUV after hearing shots and saw Sims trying to shoot the passenger, who is the father of two of her children. Sims jumped out of the BMW and ran towards the man who was trying to flee, but the woman grabbed Sims began to fight him and the man escaped without being shot, said prosecutors.

Sims then punched the woman in the face before running back to the SUV, which fled the parking lot down Western Avenue, said prosecutors.

The 24-year-old man who had escaped from the BMW called police, who found Gonzalez shot multiple times and dead in the front seat of the vehicle. After identifying one of the people who was with Sims, police were able to locate him. Police then put together a photo lineup of that person’s acquaintances and witnesses identified Sims as the person who killed Gonzalez, said prosecutors.
