Authorities have identified a 19-year-old man who was shot to death early Tuesday when he attempted to rob a concealed-carry permit holder in Fernwood.
Laavion Goings had been released from Cook County Jail two months earlier after pleading guilty to a drug charge and was on probation at the time of the robbery, according to authorities.
Goings pleaded guilty Nov. 1 to possession of methamphetamine, Cook County court records showed. He had initially also faced six counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer in connection with the same case, but the charges were later dropped by prosecutors.
The charges stemmed from his arrest in June, when Goings was charged with possession of a controlled substance and attacking a police officer in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.
He was taken into custody after being identified as the target of a search warrant about 6:50 p.m. on June 7, 2018 in the 5900 block of South Elizabeth Street, on charges of felony possession of a controlled substance, Chicago police said.
During the arrest, Goings allegedly pushed a police officer. He then caused damage to a CPD vehicle while being taken in for processing, police said.
