First-degree murder charges have been filed against a Round Lake Beach man accused of chasing down two teens — who were in his stolen vehicle — and shooting them, killing one in Volo last month.
Lynell P. Glover, 35, of the 2300 block of North Old Pond Lane in Round Lake Beach, was initially charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm, a Class X felony, and one count of obstructing justice, a Class 4 felony.
A Lake County Grand Jury indicted Glover on three additional charges of first-degree murder on Wednesday, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office said.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Scheller said during a January bond hearing that Glover’s vehicle was reported stolen on December 30 from his Round Lake Beach residence.
Glover found out his vehicle was near the Speedway gas station at Route 12 and Route 120 in Volo around 2:40 a.m. January 3.
He followed the vehicle southbound on Route 12 when the stolen vehicle, which was occupied by two 17-year-old boys from Carol Stream, ran out of gas, authorities said.
The stolen car pulled into a parking lot near the Platinum Autobody, 31223 North Route 12, and an altercation ensued, Scheller said.
Glover called 911 and dispatchers could hear him yelling in the background, “Get on the f***ing ground or I’ll shoot you,” according to Scheller.
Scheller said that Glover allegedly chased the two teens and shot them as they were running.
Officers arrived and found both of the teens with gunshot wounds. One of them, identified as Anthony Awad, sustained three gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The other teen sustained one gunshot wound to his leg and was transported to an area hospital.
Police recovered a Ruger 9mm pistol in a sewer grate. The gun belonged to Glover’s girlfriend, prosecutors said during the bond hearing.
Police also recovered shell casings in the middle of the Route 12 median between the southbound and northbound lanes.
Glover sustained minor non-gunshot injuries from the fight and did not need medical treatment. He remained at the scene.
Glover is being held on a $1 million bond and an arraignment hearing is scheduled for February 8.
