On Aug. 6, around 2 a.m. near the 79th Street CTA station, two males approached 29-year-old Diunte Moon, who was riding the Red Line home after working his security shift at Millennium Park.
Moon, a father to a 7-year-old girl, was shot twice and pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
“I would always tell him, be safe,” said the victim’s mother, Kina Moon, to WGN News days after the shooting.
Chicago police released surveillance video of the two suspects.
Police did not disclose if a second suspect is still wanted in connection with the deadly shooting.
The juvenile appeared in bond court on Wednesday.
