    IL - Donovan Turnage, 11, killed by carjacker fleeing LE, Chicago, 21 Dec 2013

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...tory?track=rss

    A suspect in a string of weekend carjackings, including one that ended in a crash that killed an 11-year-old boy, was arrested this morning after U.S. marshals in SUVs pinned him in at a McDonald's drive-thru in Milwaukee, authorities said.

    Rockie Douglas, 34, was waiting for food at the McDonald's on the northwest side of the city when deputy marshals pulled in front and back of him around 11:30 a.m., according to Ed Farrell, supervisory inspector of the task force. A woman in the car with him was not injured.

    "He attempted to use the female passenger as a human shield, briefly," said Douglas Bachert, supervisory deputy U.S. marshal in Milwaukee.

    Douglas was tracked down after using credit cards he had stolen earlier this month in a purse-snatching in Gurnee, authorities said........

    Douglas was spotted still driving the blue Honda Accord he had carjacked on the ramp from Interstate Highway 294 to the Reagan Memorial Tollway to escape police over the weekend, authorities said. He was taken to the Milwaukee County Jail to await extradition to Chicago, Bachert said.

    Douglas had been sought since Saturday when, driving a stolen car, he barreled into a Chevrolet Suburban and killed 11-year-old Donovan Turnage on the South Side, police said. Donovan, his brother and their father were out getting haircuts for the holiday, relatives said.

    I don't doubt he's into drugs but most of his charges have been for burglary and theft. Actually he should have been in jail at the time this happened:

    Lake County prosecutors in September charged Douglas with misdemeanor criminal trespass to vehicles after he was arrested by sheriff's officers, according to court records. He was released on his own recognizance, court records show.

    Then on Oct. 4, he was charged in Lake County with being a fugitive from justice who fled to Illinois to avoid Wisconsin authorities, according to court records. Douglas had pleaded guilty to burglary in 2007 in Kenosha County, Wis., and was sentenced to 7½ years of probation, court records show.

    He waived his right to official extradition proceedings. Lake County prosecutors dropped the fugitive from justice charge based on the understanding that he had been passed into the custody of Wisconsin authorities, Lake County State's Attorney Mike Nerheim said.

    Wisconsin corrections officials were unable to provide information Monday, and Kenosha County authorities could not be reached.
    A police source said authorities believe Douglas embarked on a carjacking spree around 11:20 a.m. Friday on the North Side, when he forced a woman out of a green Dodge minivan at a gas station along West Irving Park Road.
    He carjacked 3 vehicles and killed the little boy before running back to Wis.

    Prosecutors have filed murder charges against a man accused of barreling into a family's SUV while fleeing police in a stolen vehicle on Chicago's South Side days before Christmas in 2013, killing an 11-year-old boy.

    Rockie Douglas was captured in Wisconsin days after the death of Donovan Turnage. Since his arrest, Douglas has been behind bars in that state, where he's been convicted of several crimes.
