CHICAGO — A West Pullman man has been charged in the April killing of a man in Austin, police said Sunday.
Shannon Williams, 22, of the 12200 block of South Harvard Street, is charged with the shooting death of 20-year-old Trevolus Pickett. Pickett died early on the morning of April 19, after he was shot in the head the night before in the 5200 block of West Congress Parkway.
Pickett was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 12:05 a.m. Saturday. At the time, police said the shooting may have been gang related.
On Sunday, police said Williams shot Pickett in the course of an armed robbery about 11:15 p.m. on April 18.
The Chicago Police Fugitive Apprehension unit and the FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force arrested Pickett Friday in the 700 block of East 50th Place about 1:45, and took him into custody.
He was charged with one count of first-degree murder, three counts of armed robbery, and one count of issuance of a warrant. Williams is due in court Monday.
