Four people were shot dead at two separate crime scene during a bloody weekend in south suburban Ford Heights.
Late Friday afternoon two people were found dead inside a home in the 1400 block of Regent Ln. They have been identified as 38-year-old Mchezo McMillian and 21-year-old Ashley Hudson. Both had multiple gunshot wounds and the home had no signs of forced entry.
Early this morning within walking distance in the 1500 block of Park Lane two people, a 19-year-old Cyrus Vance and 17-year-old Ephram Jones whose identity has not yet been released were found dead inside a 2001white Ford van. The two were relatives.
Ford Heights doesn’t have a sufficient enough tax base to provide it’s own police department so Cook County sheriff’s police have been patrolling the area for years.
Sheriff Tom Dart says these crimes are unusual in Ford Heights but he also says there may be a gangs and drugs related element to the violence this weekend.
The investigation is ongoing.
