A 26-year-old Evanston man has been arrested and charged with the July murder of 20-year-old Brian Carrion of Glenview.
Just after 1 a.m. on July 23, Evanston Police responded to a shooting in the 300 block of Howard Street and found Mr. Carrion lying on the ground near the CTA Red Line Station. He had sustained multiple gunshot wounds, and Chicago Fire Department paramedics attempted to him, but he died. A second victim, a 21-year- old male Evanston resident, suffered a graze wound to the head and was taken to Saint Francis Hospital, where he was treated and released.
Evanston Police detectives and members of the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force, in conjunction with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, investigated the incident, interviewing witnesses, reviewing video surveillance and analyzing evidence. The investigation revealed that one offender was responsible for the murder of Brian Carrion.
Evanston Police detectives worked with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office and secured a nationwide arrest warrant for murder on Sept. 10, and began working with the U.S. Marshal Service shortly thereafter. On Oct. 10, during the early morning hours, members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested the suspect outside Toledo, Ohio. On Oct. 15, the investigation culminated with charges for first degree murder.
