Man shot in Chicago train station charged
with murder of suspect that police killed
[Chicago, IL]

PoliceOne Staff Report
(CHICAGO) -- A 26-year-old man wounded by police in a train station shootout last week has been charged with the murder of his co-conspirator, who was apparently killed by police gunfire.

The Cook County Circuit Court clerk's office has told the Portland Press Herald that the charges were lodged against Daniel Wentworth, because his felonious actions resulted in the death of his childhood friend, Andrew Wells, 25.

The two men, along with a suspect identified as Michael Sales and a fourth unnamed suspect were wanted by Maine State Police on an arrest warrant for the armed robbery of an auction house, the newspaper said.

Sales and the other suspect have not been located, but would not say why Wentworth and Wells were traveling by Amtrak from Syracuse, N.Y. to Tucson, Ariz.

The two men were stopped in the Chicago station by undercover police and DEA special agents based on a tip. Both men were armed with .40 caliber semiautomatic pistols, carrying $15,000 and wearing bulletproof vests, authorities said.

Wentworth was critically injured in the shootout and was rushed to a Chicago hospital where he remains in critical but stable condition. Ross died at the scene.
