Charges have been filed in the shooting death of a Southwest Side mother of three just two days before Mother's Day, police said.
Johnny Reese, 23, of the 11400 block of South Union Avenue, is charged with first-degree murder, murder while in the commission of a forcible felony and aggravated discharge of a firearm, the Chicago Police Department announced this morning.
Authorities believe Reese was the driver of an SUV involved in the shooting of Summer Ann Moore, 37, according to police.
Moore was standing on the front lawn of a home in the 11400 block of South Aberdeen Street on May 9, discussing plans for a Mother's Day barbecue, when she was shot around 7:50 p.m., police said.
The mother of three was helping relatives clean up after a high school graduation party and was talking about what to do for the weekend, a relative told the Tribune. Her family said she did not appear to be the target.
Reese is scheduled to appear in bond court today.
