A 17-year old boy from suburban Dixon faces a charge of first degree murder after a man was shot and killed on Chicago’s south side Tuesday.

Quovadus Mahomes is charged with the shooting that broke out in the 7400 block of South Champlain Ave in the Park Manor neighborhood.

27-year-old Devin Common was killed.

Two other men were wounded.

The Chicago Tribune reports Mahomes “urinated on his hands while in an interview room after investigators told him a gunshot residue test would be done.”

Common’s younger brother Antonio was killed 15-months earlier about four blocks from where his brother was gunned down Tuesday afternoon.

Mahomes is also charged with counts of attempted first degree murder.
