Evanston police say a dispute over the sale of a gun led to the shooting death earlier this month of 21-year-old Cardereon Priester.
Police now have arrested Matthew A. Dubose, 18, of 1830 Hovland Court, and charged him with first degree murder in the shooting that happened about 11 p.m. Sept. 10 in the 1700 block of Leland Avenue near Priester’s home.
Cmdr. Jay Parrott says an investigation by Evanston detectives and the North Regional Major Crime Task Force indicates that the shooting was in retaliation for a dispute this summer over the exchange by Dobose of drugs and money for a firearm Priester had.
Dobose is scheduled to appear in Skokie district court at 9 a.m. today for a bond hearing, with a preliminary hearing scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 30.
