Gang-related murder charges were approved against Jose Rodriguez in the shooting death of Gino Kuelbs

13:41 |

Murder charges were approved against Jose Rodriguez in the shooting death of Gino Kuelbs, according to police. Rodriguez, of the 2800 block of South Quinn Street, is scheduled to appear for a bond hearing in Violence Court (Br. 66) at noon Monday.

Kuelbs, 20, of 3209 S. Carpenter St., died of a gunshot wound to the neck, according to a Saturday autopsy. He was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center at 5:34 a.m. Saturday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office, which ruled his death a homicide.

Kuelbs and another person were shot in the 2800 block of Quinn Street about 4:50 a.m., according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli, who said officers responding to a call of an arson at the address found the shooting scene. Police said Rodriguez allegedly shot Kuelbs and another man after the two allegedly tried to set Rodriguez's car on fire outside Rodriguez's home. After 4 or 5 failed attempts because of a torrential downpour at the time, they began leaving but Rodriguez, a member of a rival gang, shot them both. Rodriguez initially told police he was defending himself and protecting his property, but police viewed pictures from an elaborate security system Rodriguez had set up. The footage showed him allegedly shooting and killing Kuelbs and wounding the other man, according to police. The other man, 30, was reported to be in good condition, police said.
Mirabelli confirmed the incident appeared to have been gang-related.

Heres the thing these guys made 4 prior attempts on his house his family and his girlfriend, they failed to report that they also burned down a house mistakenly that wasnt even his. This man needed to defend himself and his family thats all there is to it. As for the way the Police responded, was totally correct, these guys are gangmembers with guns and representing if they are gonna bottle and fight with marked cars outside the wake, what are they gonna do when no one is watching? I believe the Police Did a great job and had a great response.
