Two Joliet brothers have been charged in connection with the Monday night shooting death of an Aurora man.
Police said Jaquan Hosey-Green, 19, and Dimitri Hosey-Green, 18, were charged with first-degree murder late Wednesday night.
Bail for Dimitri Hosey-Green was set at $1.5 million Thursday morning, while bail for Jaquan Hosey-Green was set at $1 million. The next court date for the duo is Jan. 24 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
The men are accused of shooting 20-year-old Arin Williams, of Aurora, in the head during an alleged drug deal gone bad. The incident happened in the bathroom of a restaurant in the 800 block of North Lake Street just before 8 p.m. Monday.
Aurora police said the brothers went with Williams to La Torta, in the city’s Northgate shopping center, allegedly under the guise of purchasing drugs.
The three men entered the restaurant’s bathroom together, and a fight broke out. Police said the brothers began to beat Williams, and attempted to rob him.
During the fight, police said Dimitri Hosey-Green fired a single shot into Williams’ head, and fled the scene on foot with his brother.
Police said the brothers allegedly ran to a relative’s apartment, also located in the 800 block of North Lake Street. While there, police said the brothers attempted to conceal evidence related to the crime.
It is believed that a family member then drove the boys back to Joliet, police said.
Witnesses at the scene of Monday’s shooting were able to tell investigators which direction the brothers fled. Officers learned they had been spotted in the nearby apartment complex. There, police were able to locate multiple pieces of evidence the men had attempted to hide, police said.
As the investigation continued, police learned that the brothers had traveled from Joliet to Cicero. They were taken into custody on Tuesday around 1:45 p.m. near Cermack and Cicero Avenues, police said.
The two men were expected to appear for video bond call Thursday morning at the Aurora police lockup.
