CHICAGO — Police said they have arrested a suspect in the early Monday slaying of Javontay Tolliver, 33, who got into a quarrel with another man on a CTA "L" platform.
Two men were arguing on the Garfield Red Line platform around 2:30 a.m. Monday. When CTA workers told them to leave, their fight continued outside the station, said Melissa Staples, Chicago Police's chief of Detectives.
One of the men pulled a gun and chased the other man, firing shots that hit the man in his chest, Staples said.
Tolliver was pronounced dead at 3:53 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office. An autopsy showed he died from multiple gunshot wounds in a homicide.
Deering Police District officers spotted a suspect and arrested him.
Tolliver's relationship to the shooter — and why they were fighting — is being investigated, Staples said.
