WANTED: Cops ID Man Wanted In Fatal Crash, Crime Spree; Offender Struck At Least Twice Here On Friday

UPDATE DECEMBER 24, 2013:
Rockie Douglas was taken into custody this morning at a McDonald's drive-thru in Milwaukee, WI. Tribune story HERE.

Authorities have identified the man that they say is responsible for a series of crimes, including the death of an 11-year-old boy during a police pursuit on the South Side Saturday.

A joint agency statement (PDF) identifies the still at-large suspect as Rockie Douglas, most recently of Beach Park, Illinois.

Saturday's collision occurred shortly after police attempted to pull over a green minivan that was carjacked from Broadway and Irving Park Friday morning.

CWB has also been informed that Douglas is strongly suspected of being involved in at least one street crime in Wrigleyville after Friday's carjacking.

    "The following day shortly after noon, officers attempted to curb Douglas in the first stolen vehicle. The offender fled and ultimately crashed into a Chevy Suburban in the 5500 blk. of S. Halsted. This crash killed an 11-year-old boy and seriously injured the boy's fath"

    So much is still vague and unknown about the whole thing.. like why..

    1. I thought the same thing that he looked familiar. Maybe I have seen him in the neighborhood. You want to remember just because we live in the neighborhood bad people come to it. Always have your guard up.
