Police have arrested a 42-year-old parolee in the fatal shooting of Fenger High School student Fred Couch. Randall White has been charged with first-degree murder and is expected to appear in court for a bond hearing this morning.
When police arrived to arrest him, he fled on foot but was soon captured and taken into custody. White was positively identified in a photo lineup.
As previously reported surveillance video shows the fatal shooting of the Fred Couch outside of a Chicago area convenience store. A man is seen leaning outside of a white SUV and firing shots at the victim. That man is believed to be White.
The motive for the killing is still unknown.
White’s rap sheet includes numerous arrests and several felonies including a conviction for weapon possession by a felon.
He was released from jail exactly two weeks before the Couch shooting after serving two years of a six year sentence.
