Home > Press Page

Monday, February 1, 2016 Cook County Sheriff’s Police arrested two people in connection with a shooting that killed a 27-year-old man, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.

At approximately 9 p.m. on Jan. 28, Sheriff’s Police detectives were notified by Robbins Police of a shooting that took place in the 13500 block of South St. Louis Avenue. Sheriff’s Police detectives were asked to investigate at the request of the Robbins Police Department.

Detectives learned that gunfire erupted after two people were told to leave a tattoo party at the residence. Troy Thompson, 27, of Blue Island, a guest at the party, was caught and shot in the crossfire. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he died.

Upon further investigation, detectives learned that the party’s host, Shamar McGee, 36, told two people who arrived for the party to leave. As they left, McGee went outside and shot in the direction of the pair multiple times, according to the investigation. One of the men, identified as 18-year-old Anthony Evans, fired back multiple times.

Evans, of Markham, turned himself in to Sheriff’s Police on Jan. 30. McGee turned himself in on Jan. 31.

McGee has been charged with first degree murder. Evans has been charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

Both are scheduled to appear for bond hearings today at the Markham Courthouse.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty by the Government in a court of law.
