Manhunt for 'armed and extremely dangerous' murder suspect
By Rosemary R. Sobol Tribune reporter
12:47 p.m. CDT, May 17, 2012

A murder warrant has been issued for a Wheeling man suspected of fatally shooting a maintenance worker last weekend
near Arlington Heights.

Vidal Rodriguez, 20, is wanted for the murder of Abel Oliva, who was gunned down last Saturday at the Whispering
Winds apartment complex where he worked, said Frank Bilecki, a spokesman for Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.

Bilecki said Rodriguez, of the 0-100 block of Carriage Hill Road, was not in custody as of Thursday afternoon.

“The no-bond arrest warrant is for the offense of first-degree murder,’’ said Bilecki.

Rodriguez, aka “Chi-Town,” is believed to be with his girlfriend, a 17-year-old Wheeling girl who was reported missing
around the same time as the Oliva’s slaying, according to a sheriff’s release.

At the time of the shooting, Rodriguez was armed with a .22 caliber rifle and is still considered armed and extremely
dangerous, the release said.

He has previous arrests in his history and is a member of the Maniac Latin Disciples gang, according to the release.

Oliva was gunned down outside, while possibly at work about 9:45 a.m. May 12 at the complex where he also lived, in
the 4000 block of Bonhill Drive in Cook County’s Palatine Township, said Bilecki.

An autopsy May 13 determined Oliva died of multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, according to
the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Oliva was pronounced dead at 10:46 a.m. May 12 at Northwest Community Healthcare in Arlington Heights, according to
the medical examiner’s office.

No one else was injured and a motive for the attack was not clear, according to Bilecki.

As the search to locate Rodriguez and the girl continues, the Cook County Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000.00
reward to the individual who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Rodriguez.

Buckeye killing: Suspect arrested in shooting death of 45-year-old man
by Mary Kate Lau - May. 17, 2012
The Arizona Republic-12 News Breaking News Team

Maricopa County sheriff's deputies arrested a Buckeye man they believe accidentally shot and killed his friend while
they were shooting in the desert.

Sau Martinez Zuniga, 43, was booked into Fourth Avenue Jail on Monday on a charge of manslaughter after he told
detectives he shot Fortino Borquez-Galaviz in the back of the neck while they were in the desert area near
Borquez-Galaviz's Buckeye home, according to Maricopa County Superior Court documents.

Deputies found Borquez-Galaviz's body with an apparent gunshot wound in the back of his neck at about 7:20p.m. Sunday
near Pecos and Tuthill roads in Buckeye, documents say. They found his red Ford F-150 pickup truck hidden in bushes
nearby.

Their investigation led them to Zuniga, a longtime family friend who Borquez-Galaviz had been with earlier in the
day, records show.

Zuniga said the pair had been sharing a 12-pack of beer, with each drinking five, and then they decided to go shooting
in the desert, according to documents. Zuniga had a .32-caliber revolver and Borquez-Galaviz had a rifle.

Zuniga told investigators multiple versions of how Borquez-Galaviz was shot, records say. First, he said a white
sedan pulled into where he and Borquez-Galaviz were and that two men with handguns who seemed to know Borquez-Galaviz
got out and told Zuniga to leave. He said he left his gun in the truck and fled through a nearby field.

When deputies confronted him about "some of the unusual statements he made," Zuniga said he lied and that he had shot
Borquez-Galaviz in the back of the neck by accident, documents state. He said he was playing with his revolver trying
to shoot from his hip area when Borquez-Galaviz had stepped in front of him and he shot him.

But then Zuniga said Borquez-Galaviz walked in front of him while he was shooting at some bushes, court documents
state. In another version, he said he had a malfunction with his revolver after firing two shots and while trying to
clear it, he accidentally shot Borquez-Galaviz.

Zuniga said he didn't think he could help Borquez-Galaviz so he threw the revolver in the back of his truck, hid it
in the bushes and fled through a nearby field, records say.

Here in the USA gun murders sometimes get a paragraph or two in the local section or they get lumped together with
miscellaneous shootings because there are so many of them its too much trouble to list them separately.

6:15 p.m. CDT, May 19, 2012

                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        A 14-year-old boy was shot and killed Friday night while he and a friend were riding their bikes in the Brighton Park neighborhood, according to the victim's older sister.

Alejandro Jaime was riding his bike with an 11-year-year-old friend when a car struck the boys, causing them to fall from their bikes and run, said his sister, Alejandra Alvarado.

"They got scared and they started running," she said.

                                                                                                                                                                                                       

At that moment, an occupant of the vehicle got out and fired a shot at Alejandro, his sister said. The boy was shot in the back just before 9 p.m. in the 2600 block of West 37th Place in the Brighton Park neighborhood, police said, citing early reports. His friend got beaten up but got away without further harm, Alvarado said.

Jaime, of the 2900 block of West Pershing Road, was pronounced dead before 10 p.m. at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Alvarado said she thinks the shooter may have been associated with a gang and perhaps mistook Jaime for someone else. Jaime was not part of a gang and was looking forward to his family's planned move from the Brighton Park neighborhood to the city’s north side in two weeks, she said.

He was also looking forward to his graduation from 8th grade in June, said Jaime's other older sister, Rocio Alvarado.

"Everyone loved him," Rocio Alvarado said, adding that neighborhood kids would come by his house asking to play sports with him. "They would always come looking for him. 'Where's Alex? Where's Alex?' "

A witness told police that the victim and the witness were riding their bikes west on 37th Place when they were surrounded by multiple vehicles, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan, citing preliminary police reports.

The victim and some people from the vehicles got into a physical fight, but after a short time, the people who had gotten out of the vehicles got back in, Sullivan said. The witness heard gunshots, and then found the victim crouched behind a vehicle, unresponsive, Sullivan said.

Police said the investigation was being conducted by Area Central detectives.

In other overnight shootings:

-- At about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, someone stepped from a gangway in the 11600 block of South Peoria Street in the West Pullman neighborhood and opened fire at five people on a porch celebrating a birthday. Three men and two women were wounded and Markham man was found dead near the scene, police said.

Melvin Jacobs, 23, of the 16200 block of South Paulina Avenue in Markham was pronounced dead at 5 a.m. at Advocate Trinity Hospital, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office.

The other men, ages 26, 25 and 32, were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center. A 37-year-old woman was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of cook county and the other woman, 35, refused treatment at the scene after suffering a graze wound to her upper back.

-- Just after 8:30 p.m. Friday, a 32-year-old man sitting in a van in the 600 block of East 79th Street in the Chatham neighborhood was shot in his side, police said. He was taken to Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center and his condition was stable, police said.

-- About 9:20 p.m., a woman walked into Weiss Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm, police said. She was shot near the intersection of Southport Avenue and Irving Park Road in the Graceland West neighborhood on the North Side, police said.

-- About 10 p.m., a man and two women were wounded in the 5600 block of South Winchester Avenue in the West Englewood neighborhood, police said.

A 26-year-old man who was shot in the arm and leg was taken to Stroger hospital in good condition, police said. A 19-year-old woman shot in the abdomen was also taken to Stroger, in serious condition. A 23-year-old woman who was wounded in the arm was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in good condition.

-- At about the same time, a 27-year-old man was shot twice in an alley in the 3200 block of North Keeler Avenue in the Kilbourn Park neighborhood by a gunman in a passing vehicle, according to police and the Chicago Fire Department.

The victim, who suffered gunshots to the groin and the arm, was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where police said his condition stabilized.

-- At about 11:50 p.m., police said a 20-year-old man was wounded in the arm in the 7900 block of South Drexel Avenue in the East Chatham neighborhood, police said. He was taken to Stroger in stable condition.

No arrests have been made in any of the shootings.

Just another day in gun happy USA

By Jeremy Gorner and Peter Nickeas Tribune reporters
12:23 p.m. CDT, May 20, 2012

A 12-year-old boy was fatally shot late Saturday night near his Southeast Side home, another man was killed on the South Side and five other people were wounded in separate overnight attacks, according to Chicago police.

The boy, Nazia Banks, was playing with other children outside of his home just after 10 p.m. in the 8000 block of South Brandon Avenue in the South Chicago neighborhood when his father called over to him to come inside, police said.

At about that time, two people emerged from a gangway and one of them pulled a handgun and opened fire, police said. Nazia was shot in the head and died at the scene, authorities said.

It's unclear whether the boy was targeted. No one was in custody as Area South detectives conducted a homicide investigation. Nazia is the second child under 16 to be fatally shot this weekend.

A 35-year-old man died after he was shot in the head and chest at his South Side home about midnight, on the 10100 block of South Michigan Avenue in the Roseland neighborhood, police said. Police said the man, identified as Dwayne Billingsley, was approached by someone who emerged from a gangway and fired the shots.

He was initially taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition, along with an 18-year-old man who was shot in the leg.

A man was shot in the back about 2:40 a.m. on the 1300 block of West 108th Street in the Morgan Park neighborhood, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said. Circumstances surrounding the shooting weren't clear. The man was taken to Christ Medical Center, Gaines said.

A 19-year-old man refused to cooperate with investigators after he was shot in the abdomen in the Logan Square neighborhood, police said. He was shot about 2:15 a.m. on the 2700 block of West Francis Place. Additional information about the shooting wasn't available.

About 12:15 a.m., a 29-year-old man's head was grazed by a bullet at 61st Street and Champlain Avenue in the West Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side,  Gaines said. He walked into the Bernard Mitchell Medical Center at the University of Chicago about 12:30 a.m., Gaines said.

About 6:50 p.m. Saturday, a man whose age wasn't available was shot in the arm in a drive-by shooting near the intersection of 23rd Street and California Avenue in the Little Village neighboprhood on the Southwest Side, police said.

Someone shouted "king love," an apparent reference to the shooter's affiliation with the Latin King street gang, from inside a blue or grey vehicle before opening fire, police said.

The victim, who is affiliated with a rival gang according to police, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition, police said.

It appeared that White had tried to climb out of his pickup truck, but police said he was dead at the scene.
Authorities didn't give a motive for the slaying. No arrests have been made as police remained at the scene this morning.
