(CBS) — A man wanted for carjackings, robberies and a suspect in the death of an 11 year old boy here in Chicago is now in police custody.
The manhunt for Rocky Douglas ended in a McDonald’s drive thru in Milwaukee, where he tried to use a female passenger as a shield.
Douglas was still in that stolen Honda and was using a credit card stolen in a weekend robbery not too far from the McDonald’s.
During one of those carjackings, Douglas allegedly killed an innocent boy: 11-year-old Donovan Turnage.
CBS 2’s Mike Puccinelli talked with the father of Donovan Turnage after hearing the man suspected of killing Donovan was captured.
“It was just joy. I can rest now a little bit,” said Derrick Turnage.
Derrick Turnage is talking about how his family reacted to news that the man suspected of killing his son had been caught.
He hasn’t slept soundly since Saturday when his 11 year old son was killed in this vehicle after police say fleeing carjacking suspect Rockie Douglas slammed into it. Mr. Turnage was driving at the time when his son was thrown from the vehicle on impact.
“I was laying down on the ground right beside him talking to him talking to him, ‘stay with me, your daddy right here. I ain’t going nowhere, right here.’ When I saw his eyes start rolling I’m like Oh my God where’s the ambulance somebody help,’” said Turnage.
Douglas will spend the holiday in jail, while on Artesian Street the Turnage family prepares for a Christmas without Donovan.
“I’m going to still wrap his presents like he is here. That’s what he would have wanted,” said Derrick Turnage.
A federal task force had received a tip that Douglas was in the Milwaukee area. They were watching him when his vehicle was surrounded. He attempted to make a break for it but was quickly apprehended.
A woman in the car with him is still being questioned by police.
