CHICAGO (STMW) – A Roseland man has been charged with a 2012 fatal shooting that happened just blocks from his Far South Side home.

Wendell Haywood, 21, is charged with first-degree murder after he was identified as the person who shot and killed a 23-year-old man on May 9, 2012, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

The shooting happened about 11 a.m. in the 0-100 block of West 108th Place, authorities said at the time. Travis Perkins was shot in the chest about 11 a.m.

Perkins, of the 10500 block of South Wabash Avenue, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 1:35 p.m., authorities said. Though police said Wednesday that Perkins was 23, the medical examiner’s office said at the time he was 24.

Haywood, of the 10600 block of South Perry Avenue, is expected to appear in bond court Thursday.
