CHICAGO – The FBI has added a Chicago man to its list of ten most wanted fugitives.
They say Luis Macedo ordered the killing and burning of a 15- year- old Chicago boy.
Authorities say in 2009, Macedo was the ringleader of several alleged gang members who brutally beat and shot Alex Arellano. Then they set him on fire, after he refused to flash a gang sign.
Four others have been convicted but Macedo, whose last known address was in Oak Lawn, is on the run, possibly in Mexico or the southeast U.S.
FBI officials made the decision to add him to the Top Ten fugitive list because they believe that will generate the tips and publicity they need to find him.
The FBI says they are working closely with CPD in task forces.
Macedo is Considered armed and extremely dangerous.
He's 28-years-old with several tattoos including a crown on the left side of his neck and the words "so many" on the back of his neck.
There is up to a $100,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
