Three teenagers charged in a shotgun slaying in the Rogers Park neighborhood over the weekend had agreed to kill a rival gang member after being offered cash, prosecutors said today.
“He had some problems in the past, but he was not a gang member,” said a tearful Francis. “He wanted to keep people away from that life.”
Prosecutors said a still-uncharged co-conspirator offered the three cash to kill a member of the rival Gangster Disciples and gave Brown a sawed-off shotgun.
Police found the shotgun while canvassing the area and arresting Smart inside his apartment in the7600 block of North Greenview Avenue, Santini said. All three defendants attend Wells Community Academy in Chicago, according to a court-appointed defense attorney.
Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. denied bail for Brown and set bonds of $1 million each for Lamb and Smart.
