Arrest warrant issued for suspect in barber’s shooting death
CHICAGO (AP) — An arrest warrant has been issued for a suburban Chicago man suspected in the shooting death of a barber to Chicago Bears players.
Michael Carney was shot at a gasoline station in Harvey as his 5-year-old daughter sat in an auto. City spokesman Sean Howard says the 26-year-old Carney was able to get into the car and drive four blocks before losing consciousness.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office says Carney died from several gunshot wounds.
Howard says an arrest warrant was issued Thursday for Carney’s suspected shooter, 27-year-old Perry Gosa of Matteson. Authorities say Gosa, who is charged with first-degree murder, is an ex-boyfriend of Carney’s girlfriend. Gosa allegedly was seen following Carney before the shooting.
Howard says Carney’s barbershop in Harvey was frequented by Bears players, including linebacker Khalil Mack and cornerback Prince Amukamara.
