Followup WI: Accomplice Charged with Murder in CCW Defense Case
People who participate in violent felonies can be charged with the death of their fellow criminals, even if they did not pull the trigger.
On December 27th, Deonte Thomas and Dantel Henderson allegedly tried to rob a man as he was leaving a store near South 66th Street and W. Euclid. The plot was foiled when the victim, who had a concealed carry permit, pulled out a gun and opened fire.
Thomas died on scene, but Henderson survived.
Henderson is now charged with Thomas' death.
