2 charged with attack on armored car guards in Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) — Two young men were charged Wednesday in a shooting that killed one armored car guard and critically wounded another and a second shooting a short time later that left two suspected accomplices dead, police said.
Antoine Montgomery, 19, and Deandre Jennings, 21, were charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in the armored car shooting Monday, Police Supt. David Brown said. The two also were charged with first-degree murder in the double homicide a short time later of two alleged accomplices in the earlier shooting, Brown said.
Montgomery also is charged with armed robbery and unlawful restraint in the holdup of a cellphone store, police said.
The earlier shooting killed LaShonda Hearts, 47, was struck six times Monday died at a hospital, authorities said. The other guard, a 46-year-old man, was shot twice in his abdomen and taken to a hospital in critical condition, officials said. He is still recovering from his injuries.
The subsequent shooting killed two people, a driver and a passenger, in a car that crashed into several others.
The assailants ended up turning on each other, Brown said.
“Basically, this was, ‘There is no honor among thieves,’ and after the robberies and murder, they got into an altercation with each other – and two are deceased, two are charged,” Brown said.
