Harvey police announced on Thursday that an arrest warrant for first-degree murder has been issued for a suspect in the shooting death on Saturday, Nov. 26, of a railway security guard. Area law enforcement agencies are searching for Rashad Williams, 24, of East Hazel Crest.
Multiple police agencies were searching the area Saturday night for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a CN Railway security guard in Harvey.
The incident began about 7 p.m. when the suspect allegedly stole a vehicle. The victim contacted Harvey police and in another car pursued the stolen vehicle, according to news conference video posted on an ABC7 News Facebook page.
A ruling in the court case between the cities of Chicago and Harvey over Harvey's delinquent water bill was described by the judge as a balanced deal, according to a Chicago Tribune report, but it won't have much effect on the situation from Homewood's perspective.
The Village of Homewood and other south suburban municipalities did not receive the court ruling they hoped for in a continuing legal battle with the City of Harvey, according to village officials.
Homewood and other suburbs that buy water from Harvey have joined the City of Chicago in requesting a third party be appointed to handle Harvey's water revenues.
Local residents wondering if Harvey's water finance woes will trickle down to Homewood probably have nothing to fear, according to village officials.
