Chicago – A New Lenox man faces charges related to the shooting of a 14-year-old girl in June on the city’s Southwest Side.
Police arrested 26-year-old Michael Aguirre on Monday in Costner and Flornoy. He is accused of killing Savannah Quintero.
He also faces a charge of attempted murder.
Police said Quintero and her boyfriend were walking her dog outside a convenience store on June 2 at 1700 from West 48th Street. She was approached and asked which gang she belonged to. After a relative said he was in a gang, the girl was shot in the head and later died.
A 17-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection with Quintero’s death.
Aguirre is also linked to a shooting on August 19 that injured a 21-year-old man at 102 and State.
He was due to appear in court on Wednesday.
