A 19-year-old man has been charged in connection with last week's brutal quadruple homicide in South Shore.

Police announced early on Wednesday morning that Maurice Harris faces four counts of first-degree murder. Authorities are expected to release further details later in the morning at Chicago Police Department headquarters.

The brazen mass shooting happened last Thursday at a South Shore restaurant, Nadia Fish & Chicken, at around 3:51 p.m. When police arrived, Emmanuel Stokes, 28, and Edwin Davis, 32, were found fatally shot inside the restaurant; Raheem Jackson, 19, and his brother Dillon Jackson, 20, were found shot and killed outside near the building.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said at the time that the deadly attack may have been a gang-related retaliation.

The quadruple killings were part of a particularly deadly day in South Shore. Seven people, including a pregnant woman, were shot to death in the neighborhood that day. Police have not indicated that the other shootings are related.
