- A man on parole for armed robbery has been charged with the fatal shootings of Chicago Police Officer Michael Flisk and former Chicago Housing Authority officer Stephen Peters in a Southeast Side alley last week.
Timothy Herring Jr., 19, of the 8100 block of South Manistee Avenue, was charged with first-degree murder. Prosecutors said Herring is eligible for the death penalty but they have not decided whether to seek it.
Herring is also charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm stemming from an incident in June. No details were available on that case.
The suspect lives across the alley from where Peters parked his prized Ford Mustang GT inside his mother's garage in the 8100 block of South Burnham Avenue, sources told the Tribune.
