The 17-year-old boy has been charged with first-degree murder, police said. CPD said he would not be accepted as an adult. Police believe Jackie was killed during a car chase.
CPD Chief Detective Brian Denihan Rosich said Rosich was in his car waiting for work when two suspects drove up, made a U-turn and approached him at the park. His stepson, who was with him at the time, saw that there were a handful of armed men, and told him to run along. When the two men tried to drive away, one of the suspects shot Rozich in the car. After he crashed, Denihan said the suspect, who was in his car, walked up to his car, crashed, and fired multiple shots at him.
The incident was partially captured on gun-mounted video, giving police a view of the artillery.
Police were able to track down the victim in the vehicle, and it was assumed that his car had been carjacked, leading to another carjacking. The car was subjected to four different carjacking or carjacking tests, and four vehicles were recovered. The investigation also crossed Indian public lines.
Using technology to interrogate the suspects, the police were able to find photos of them from other locations. After the photos were published by journalists and social media, several witnesses contacted the suspect to help with the investigation.
Denihan said he could take one suspect into custody in Chicago, and he could trust the other suspect. Police said they know who they are looking for.
Both are suspected to be juveniles, and their names have been released. Both are from Chicago.
