A 29-year-old man has been arrested and charged with the March 1 shooting death of a 66-year-old Palos Park man, Chicago Police said Friday.
Tyneil Washington is charged with first degree murder in the death of Herbert Goode, on the 2300 block of W. 57th Street. Goode was shot after an armed robbery attempt.
The arrest was the result of collaboration between Chicago Police, the Champaign Police Department, Fugitive Apprehension and the U.S. Marshal's office. A sketch of the offender was distributed across the midwest. Champaign police received the sketch and, aware that Washington was in the area, called in Area Central Detectives. The Fugitive Apprehension Section and members of the U.S. Marshal's Great Lake Regional Fugitive Task Force located and arrested Washington without incident.
Washington appeared in Bond Court Friday at 2600 S. California.
Goode, the owner of custom framing Silver Cloud Galleries in Chicago, was described as a "jack of all trades and animal lover," as well as donor and volunteer to animal welfare organizations. He was active in local school boards and the Boy Scouts of America.
"He touched a lot of lives,” son Alex Goode, 26, told the Tribune of his slain father. “It’s a blow to the community.”
