Man Charged With Murder In Fatal Shooting In Chatham – CBS Chicago
CHICAGO (CBS) — A man has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a 66-year-old man who police initially said was trying to defend his niece from a sexual assault in the Chatham neighborhood.
Police initially said Lewis stepped in after his 17-year-old niece was sexually assaulted in her bedroom in the 500 block of East 89th Place around 9 p.m. Thursday. That’s when Malone shot Lewis, according to police.
Police originally said Lewis had entered the house through an open window, but on Friday police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said detectives had discovered “inconsistencies in the initial story” and further investigation revealed he had been invited into the home.
