CHICAGO — A man has been charged in the murder of another man in the city’s South Loop on Sunday.
Robert Burgess, 56, of Woodlawn, is charged with a felony count of first-degree murder.
Burgess is accused of fatally shooting a 45-year-old man, a husband and father, in the head around 10 a.m. Sunday near Michigan Ave and 18th Street.
A neighbor tells WGN the victim’s wife and child recently moved to Florida for a job. He was still here trying to sell their condo and was walking to get coffee when the shooting happened.
Burgess was taken into custody on Sunday. He is scheduled to appear in bond court today.
