The mugshots of Chicago murder suspects, Devon Swan & Antwan C. Jones

Days after The DigiSpot reported the triple shooting that took the lives of 2-year-old Lavontay White Jr., his 26-year-old uncle Lazarec Collins, & injured Collins’ pregnant girlfriend, Chicago PD now have a suspect in custody. The suspect in question, Devon Swan, has been brought up on first-degree murder charges for his part in the triple shooting that went down on Tuesday (2.14.2017).

According to Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, the shooting came about because of issues between Collins & others and more arrests are soon to come. As of right now, Collins’ pregnant girlfriend–who took a bullet to the abdomen–is currently in fair condition, according to Chicago PD.
