I just came across two homicides over the past few weeks that escaped my radar.
18 years old
Jaime was killed in what is being called assault in the 5800 block of South California Ave. in Chicago's Gage Park neighborhood. Police responded to a report of a man down in a backyard with blood near his head. He had a gunshot wound behind his left ear. No other details are known.
Jorge Luis Flores
22 years old
Jose Garcia, who has since been charged with first degree murder, and Flores were in a fight before Garcia allegedly returned to the scene with a handgun and shot Flores in the right shoulder at 5:48 a.m. Monday morning in the 2400 block of South Central Park Ave. in the Little Village community. Flores was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital at 12:33 p.m.
