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.
