    Robbery death called murder

    Tuesday, August 22, 2006

    An accused teenage robber faces a murder charge after his teenage uncle was shot and killed last week by the pair's intended victim.

    Jacob Grant, 18, of the 5900 block of South Justice Street, Chicago, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the fatal shooting Thursday of his 16-year-old uncle, Javosky Holmes, in Hazel Crest.

    Holmes, Grant and a 14-year-old boy planned to rob Brian Katlik as he sat in his car in the 17300 block of Mahoney Parkway, according to Cmdr. John Palcu, of the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force.

    He said Holmes shot and wounded Katlik, who returned fire and hit Holmes in the abdomen. Holmes staggered across a field and collapsed in a creek while Katlik ran in the opposite direction and flagged down a passer-by who took him to a hospital, Palcu said.

    Holmes, of 2815 Lexington Drive, Hazel Crest, was pronounced dead at St. James Hospital in Olympia Fields soon after, but Katlik survived. He's in stable condition at St. James.

    Grant was apprehended Saturday after evading arrest for more than 48 hours, Palcu said.

    "Grant has been charged with the homicide because he was involved in the commission of the crime and went with Holmes," Palcu said Monday.

    Tandra Simonton, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state's attorney's office, said Grant was "committing a robbery, which means he's responsible for whatever happens" during the course of the crime.

    The 14-year-old youth has spoken with officers but has not been charged, Palcu said, adding that Katlik had surrendered his 9 mm handgun and that Holmes' weapon was recovered from the scene.

    On Friday, Holmes' mother, Quying Holmes, described him as "a cool kid" who had "fallen in with a bad group of boys." He was a student at Country Club Hills Tech and Trade Center but always wanted to be a doctor, she said. of course he was such a little angel thats why he was out robbing people :mad:

    Grant, who has previously been charged with and cleared of assault, burglary and a sex offense, also faces battery charges in a separate case. Sounds like another poor misguided youth :wtc:

    He's being held on $700,000 bail at Cook County Jail. His next court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 8 at the Markham courthouse.

    I'm suprised the real victim wasn't charged happend in Chicago after all where I thought guns were banned.
