Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

Christopher Pitts murder 1/20/2001 Chicago, IL *Three men, all part of the same gang as Pitts, convicted of his murder, sentenced to prison*


From Hodges’ appeal: Defendant’s convictions stemmed from a shooting incident that occurred around 1 a.m. on January 20, 2001, at a gas station on Chicago’s West Side. According to the evidence adduced at trial,
defendant and his nephews, Toniac Jackson and David Jackson, arrived at the gas station in a black Geo Tracker shortly after 1 a.m.

At about the same time, the victim, Christopher Pitts, and several of Pitts’s friends, including Marquis Scales, arrived at the gas station in a red van. Pitts got out of the van and walked to the gas station’s cashier’s window, where he saw Toniac Jackson. Following an argument between the two men, who were members of the same gang, Pitts turned and ran around the corner of the gas station building and then behind the building. Toniac began chasing Pitts, and defendant joined in the chase. Toniac fired a 10-millimeter handgun at Pitts, and defendant fired shots in Pitts’s direction with a 9-millimeter handgun. Pitts was later found dead in the street about a quarter-block from the gas station, with six gunshot wounds to the back of his head and body. No gun was recovered from Pitts’s body, and the State’s occurrence
witness testified that Pitts was unarmed.

Approximately 24 cartridge cases were recovered from various locations at the scene. Some were 9 millimeter, some 10 millimeter, and some .25 caliber. Seven 9-millimeter cases were found near the victim’s body, along with two fired bullets, which were determined to be 9-millimeter as well. The .25-caliber cases were fired from a handgun subsequently recovered by police which apparently belonged to defendant’s codefendant, David Jackson. Police did not recover a
9-millimeter gun or a 10-millimeter gun. However, the 9-millimeter cartridge cases found at the scene were all fired from the same 9- millimeter weapon, and the 10-millimeter cases were fired from the same 10-millimeter gun.

Defendant testified that he shot toward Pitts in self-defense, after seeing and hearing gunfire coming from Pitts’s direction. Defendant also testified that he saw gunfire coming from the van. Defendant denied trying to shoot Pitts.
