Diligent, Cooperative Efforts by Department Members Lead to Attempt Murder Charges
CHICAGO – Chicago Police arrested and charged the man responsible for a shooting that occurred during the commission of a robbery in late November 2012 and which left a 19-year-old victim seriously injured with multiple gunshot wounds.
Michael Steven Gay, 21, of the 200 block of W. 95th St. was charged with one count each of Attempt First Degree Murder, Armed Robbery, Aggravated Battery, and Issuance of a Warrant in connection with a probation violation.
On November 25th, 2012, officers responded to a call of shots fired on the 2700 block of E. 80th St. just before 1:30 a.m. Upon arrival, a 19-year-old man was found on the lower stairwell inside of a residence at that location with multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to Stroger Hospital for medical attention.
Area South Detectives assigned to the case learned offenders entered the building and robbed the victim before shooting the man several times and fleeing the scene. Relentless investigation by Detectives led to the positive identification of Gay as one of the offenders involved in the offense. Information was relayed to officers in the Fugitive Apprehension Section, who located Gay on the 200 block of W. 95th St. on Friday morning. Gay was transported to Area South for processing, where felony charges were obtained for his role in the robbery and shooting.
Gay was scheduled to appear in bond court on January 19th, 2013.
