A 19-year-old Portage Park man was charged in a fatal shooting in December in Mayfair on the Northwest Side.
Julio Rubio-Gonzalez faces a count of first-degree murder in the Dec. 17, 2020, shooting of 19-year-old Carlos Cruz, Chicago police said.
About 12:50 p.m., Cruz was walking his dog in the 4000 block of West Wilson Avenue, when someone in a stolen white Nissan Maxima fired shots, striking him multiple times in the body, police said. He died at Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
The stolen Nissan was found several blocks away in the 4400 block of North LaCrosse Avenue, and officers located the person of interest even farther west in the 4300 block of North Major Avenue, police said.
Rubio-Gonzalez was arrested about 12:45 p.m. Tuesday in the 5500 block of West Grand Avenue, after being identified as someone involved with the shooting, police said.
He was due in bond court Thursday.
