CHICAGO, Illinois—A Chicago man has been charged with the savage murder of 59-year-old Rae Park, who was fatally shot during a robbery on December 1; the morning of his daughter’s 23rd birthday.
23-year-old Julius Flowers has been charged with one felony count of first-degree murder and one felony count of robbery with a firearm, reportsFOX32 Chicago.
Flowers, who had pending firearm cases, was arrested earlier this month after allegedly carjacking a driver at gunpoint in Rogers Park. He later confessed to police that he murdered another robbery victim, according to FOX32.
Flowers and another carjacking suspect, 22-year-old Isaiah Walker, were both ordered to be held without bail in connection to the Rogers Park carjacking that occurred on the same day 59-year-old Park was shot and killed.
Park was walking out of his apartment at about 7:06 a.m. on December 1 to his minivan. Seconds later, a four-door sedan pulled up in an alley in the 2600 block of West Catalpa Street.
Flowers allegedly got out of the car and announced a robbery. He then shot Park and left the scene, reports FOX32.
