Man charged with murder for South Loop shooting

- A west suburban man has been charged with killing a man and injuring a woman in a shooting last month in the South Loop.

Norberto Frausto, 37, was arrested Wednesday after he was identified as the shooter in the June 6 shooting in the 2300 block of South Michigan, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

Frausto drove his vehicle alongside a pickup at 3:58 a.m. before firing several shots into the truck and driving away, police said.

Sami Talab Salaymeh, 27, was shot in the abdomen and arm, while a 23-year-old woman was shot in the right leg, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

They drove themselves to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where Salaymeh, who lived in the 3800 block of Windjammer Lane in Hanover Park, was pronounced dead at 4:41 a.m., authorities said. The woman was in good condition.

Frausto, who lives in Countryside, has been charged with first-degree murder, police said. He was expected to appear in bond court Friday.
