Chicago men charged in deadly Back of the Yards shooting

Two men are facing murder charges in the shooting of another man last February in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Terrance McNutt, 31, and Jaylin Smith, 18, allegedly shot 21-year-old Demonte Glover on Feb 1 in the 1900 block of West Garfield Boulevard, according to officials.

Glover was struck in the abdomen and was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he died due to his injuries, police and the medical examiner's office said.


McNutt was arrested Tuesday in the Englewood neighborhood. Smith was taken into custody a day later in Gage Park. They were each charged with one count of first-degree murder.

The pair is scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday.
