Man charged for murder in 4500 block of Evans
January 22, 2015

Language from the Probable Cause Statement: "Police and emergency personnel arrived at 45XX Evans at approximately 12:10am. At the scene, they found the victim, O.B. inside a car. O.B. was pronounced deceased at the scene. He suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. During an interview with an eyewitness, I learned that the defendant came to that location with the purpose to take O.B.’s property against his will. Another person, who has not yet been located, approached the car that O.B. was located inside of, a struggle ensued and O.B. was shot once in the chest. The defendant then drove the shooter away from the scene. While doing so, the defendant told the eyewitness to give him O.B.’s possessions but the eyewitness refused. The defendant threatened to kill the eyewitness then drove away. The defendant then called the eyewitness on the phone and again threatened to kill the eyewitness if the eyewitness spoke to police. Earlier in the day while at 45XX Evans, the defendant took a 9mm Ruger out of the car of K.W. without W.K.’s permission. A 9mm shell casing was found at the scene of the homicide."


*Charges are only accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until the defendant is either found guilty or has pleaded guilty.
