Chicago police have arrested and charged a 19-year-old man with a quadruple murder that took place March 30 at a South Shore restaurant.
Maurice Harris was arrested Tuesday (April 4) in what law enforcement is saying is a gang related shooting. Harris’ father, 37-year-old Jerry Jacobs was gunned down about a mile away from Nadia Fish and Chicken restaurant on March 29, and Chief of Detective Brian Deenihan said “Twenty-four hours later, his own son goes and kills four people.”
Two of the four people killed were brothers. Raheem Jackson, 19 and his older brother Dillion Jackson 20, were both shot while getting food and visiting their mother who worked at the eatery. Their bodies were found inside the restaurant. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office later identified 28-year-old Emmanuel Stokes and Edwin Davis, 32 who were found dead outside.
While the brother’s mother was inconsolable, she was overhead wondering how and if she will be able to go on.
“I can’t go on; my life is over. I’m ’bout to g**damn kill myself,” the mother said. “I was standing right here in the window; they killed ’em right in front of me.”
