The Beach Park man who allegedly committed a series of carjackings this weekend in Chicago, leading to the death of an 11-year-old South Side boy, was captured Tuesday while apparently placing an order at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Milwaukee, authorities said.
“He was at the window,” U.S. Marshal Supervisor Douglas Bachert said about Rockie Douglas. Douglas, 34, was with a woman in his car when he was apprehended, Bachert said.
Douglas was the subject of a manhunt by Chicago, state and federal authorities for his crime spree this weekend in Chicago. Police had said he may have been driving a light blue 2007 four-door Honda Accord.
Chicago and state police say Douglas began a series of carjackings in Chicago on Friday, when he allegedly stole a green Dodge Caravan at 11:20 a.m. in the 800 block of West Irving Park Road.
Police said they tried to pull him over in that van Saturday, but he fled and crashed into an SUV in Englewood carrying 11-year-old Donovan Turnage, as well as his father and older brother.
Turnage, of the Chicago Lawn neighborhood, was pronounced dead a short time later. Meanwhile, Douglas allegedly stole a second car and got away.
Police said he stole a third vehicle, the 2007 Honda Accord, after the second stolen car broke down in the western suburbs.
