|Chicago's South Side|
But they apparently never met a South Side Chicagoan who wishes he kept quiet--or had a different lawyer.
From NBC Chicago:
Just moments after a man announced a $15 million lawsuit against the city of Chicago in a 2014 police shooting, he was arrested on suspicion of murder.In that incident Greer, who was carrying a gun, was shot seven times in Englewood. As for last month's shooting, for which Greer has been charged for murder, that occurred during a dice game in an abandoned home.
Dominiq Greer, 25, was taken into custody Wednesday shortly after a news conference announcing his lawsuit. Police said he was arrested on a warrant for first-degree murder stemming from a fatal shooting in the city's Washington Park neighborhood on May 27.

In that shooting, a 22-year-old man was killed in an apartment in the 5600 block of South Wabash. The man, identified as Kevin Larry, was pronounced dead at the scene and a criminal investigation indicated Greer was the shooter, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Further details on the shooting weren't immediately known, but charges were pending, authorities said.
Shortly before his arrest, Greer alleged police used excessive force when they shot him numerous times during a foot pursuit on the Fourth of July in 2014.
