Alleged Getaway Driver Charged In Rogers Park Shooting Death « Cbs Chicago

Prosecutors said he drove the getaway car, and handed the shooter the gun used to kill Lewis, but was not the shooter. The gunman allegedly was aiming at a gang rival, but hit Lewis instead. Vaughn was denied bail at a bond hearing Monday afternoon. Defendant Vaughn told the uncharged co-defendant to wet that t-shirt up, which meant to make victim bleed, said prosecutor Alexandra Molesky Eric Vaughn (Credit: Chicago Police) A married photographer based in the Milwaukee area, Lewis had just moved to the Ravenswood neighborhood from Wisconsin last year, and then moved to Rogers Park a couple weeks ago. He was supposed to start a new full-time job on Monday at Trunk Club, a menswear fashion & style site that specializes in home delivery. His wife is an art director at the Leo Burnett marketing agency. Ald. Joe Moore (49th) was walking on the block at the time of the shooting, and saw the gunman fire repeatedly at people at the bus stop. It was surreal, and quite a shock.

Alibaba’s Behemoth Ipo Making Few Ripples In Washington - Bloomberg

The VIE is linked to the publicly-held parent via contracts rather than ownership. The arrangement, although tolerated by the Chinese government, can be considered illegal in China, the security review commissions report said. Any dispute would force shareholders to sue in Chinese courts. This puts Enron to shame, Wessel said. These could be some of the riskiest investments anyone could engage in. Alibabas proposed structure, including having a board majority appointed by its partners, kept Hong Kong (700) regulators from endorsing its listing, prompting the firm to go to the New York Stock Exchange instead.

England Defence Must Be Rebuilt For The Promising Young Attack To Succeed | Bleacher Report

Tom Peck (@tompeck) June 24, 2014 The problem for England is, who replaces them? Chris Smalling looks far off the quality needed for this level, while Phil Jones could be an aggressive leader at the backif he manages to hold down a position for his club over the coming seasons. It's a big campaign coming up for the 22-year-old, who is now past the "promising youngster" stage and into what should be the part of his career where he nails down his role in a sideif he is indeed going to fulfil the undoubted potential he carries. Steven Caulker has been vaunted as an international prospect, but he's currently a Championship defender and has two fairly good, not stupendous, Premier League seasons behind him. John Stones is another possibility who may yet progress rapidly over the coming seasons. Richard Heathcote/Getty Images Flanagan (aged 21) and Stones (aged 20) were England's standby defenders. Luke Shaw, Nathaniel Clyne, Jon Flanagan and maybe even Micah Richardsall possess the ability to fight for a place at full-back. Others will emerge as candidates too; they always do, though only one or two may make the step up over a longer period. It's not just names that England need, though, but a system.

Neville: England Management More Than Happy With Rooney | Fox Sports On Msn

Carragher suggested Sterlings pace would prove key down the flank against a Uruguay squad one defender short after Maxi Pereira was sent off late on in their defeat to Costa Rica,while hethinks Rooney will suit a role through the middle. I would put himRooney atnumber 10 [on Thursday], he added. The only reason I wouldnt have played him there against Italy was because of Pirlo I think he would have spent most of his time worrying about him rather than getting into the box and causing problems. I dont think Uruguay have that type of player in midfield theyre more protective of their back four.
