JOLIET — Police have identified a suspect in the slaying of a Chicago man on Saturday on Nicholson Street.
Rueben W. Washington, 32, of 6333 Berry Trail Pass in Matteson is wanted on a warrant for murder, according to court records. Cmdr. Brian Benton confirmed police believe Washington is responsible for fatally shooting Antonio P. Tyler, 31.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call detectives at 815-724-3020 or anonymously call CrimeStoppers at 800-323-6734.
