A man has been charged with killing 19-year-old David Martinez and wounding a teenage boy in a shooting a year and a half ago in the Southwest Side Little Village neighborhood.
Lamar Baker, 19, is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.
Just after 5 p.m. on Jan. 25, 2016, Baker and two men were driving in a vehicle in the 3000 block of South Kedvale when they passed by Martinez and a 17-year-old boy, prosecutors said.
Martinez and the teen recognized Baker and the two men as rival gang members, and the groups flashed gang signs at each other, prosecutors said.
Baker and the other two men drove around the block and into an alley, prosecutors said. Baker got out of the car, walked to the end of the alley and hid in some bushes.
