Chicago police arrested a second man and charged him with murder for the death of a woman who fled from him and other suspects during an armed robbery, the Chicago Sun Times reports.
Authorities believe Devonte M. Dodd was one of several assailants who tried to rob Pamela Johnson and Eugene Jackson at gunpoint last weekend.
Dodd, 20, allegedly approached Jackson and Johnson at about 1:30 a.m. May 29 on North Lake Shore Drive. The police said Dodd chased the couple, and another suspect, 18-year-old Semaj Waters, pointed a gun at the pair.
A pickup truck hit Johnson, 32, when she and her boyfriend tried to run across Lake Shore Drive. Johnson died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, but Jackson survived his minor injury.
In addition to murder, authorities charged Dodd with attempted armed robbery. He also faces one misdemeanor count of mob action. Waters faces the same charges.
According to the newspaper, the police believe up to eight individuals were involved in the robbery, including four teenagers. Authorities released surveillance photos and questioned six suspects last week.
Johnson was the mother of a 12-year-old son. Jackson, 43, said he and Johnson were planning a life together.
