CHICAGO — A 15-year-old boy is facing aggravated battery charges for allegedly shooting a 28-year-old man inside a Brighton Park McDonald's in February.

According to Assistant State's Attorney Sarah Karr, Oscar Munoz, a member of the Satan Disciple Gang, shot a 28-year-old member of "the 26 gang" after the man mocked several girls at a McDonald's, at 3867 S. Archer Ave.

At 2:45 p.m. on Feb. 23, four girls associated with the Satan Disciples went to the restaurant after skipping school and saw the 28 year old, his brother-in-law and a small child. After the man made fun of the girls, he went into the play area with his brother-in-law, who is also a member of the 26 gang, and the child, Karr said.

The girls then went into the bathroom and called a friend to tell them what had happened and ask for a ride. The friend was unable to pick the girls up, but moments later Munoz called one of the girls back and told them he'd be there shortly, Karr said.

One of the girls met Munoz and another boy, who has yet to be charged, outside before telling the other girls to leave. The two boys then entered the play area and followed the two men out. Moments later, Munoz pulled a gun from his pocket and fired 3 to 4 shots, striking the 28-year-old man in his buttocks, lower back and groin, Karr said.

The man jumped behind the counter to hide as Munoz and the other boy fled the scene. Later, Munoz texted and called one of the girls telling them to delete texts sent before the shooting. The entire incident was also caught on surveillance video, Karr said.

Munoz was identified by multiple witnesses in a photo array, and a warrant was issued for his arrest on Feb. 28, Karr said. He was arrested on Wednesday and confessed to shooting the man because he was a "2-6er."

Karr said Munoz told police he had been a Satan Disciple since he was 12 years old.
