NBC 5 covers the recent NIU murder in depth (go view it before they take it down again):
- A Markham teen has been charged in the shooting death of a Northern Illinois University student at an off-campus party, DeKalb Police said Wednesday afternoon.
Chaz Thrailkill, 19, is accused of getting into a fight with Steven Agee II, 22, early Wednesday at an apartment complex at 809 Edgebrook Drive, police said. Agee, a sociology major and student leader on campus, was shot three times in the chest around 2 a.m. and later pronounced dead at Kishwaukee Hospital.
Thrailkill was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated discharge of a firearm. Thrailkill was arrested at 10:42 a.m. in the 1100 block of Varsity Bl., police said, and is being held on $3 million
UPDATE: We're being told the hand signs the victim is posing with is an actual fraternity along with the colors he is pictured wearing. While we have no idea why a fraternity would condone emulating what gets hundreds, if not thousands of people killed every year in cities across the nation, we'll remove the sarcastic portion of our posting along with the photo for the time being.
