A shootout in a southwest side apartment complex last September was a robbery, police say, and they have arrested three men and charged them with capital murder.
Chajioke Ukegbu, 21, was killed in the incident in the 8300 block of South Course Drive.
Arrested without incident were Justin McGee, 20, Arthur McSwain, 27, and Anthony Avalos, 25.
An "investigation determined Mr. Ukegbu had been shot during a robbery in which McGee, McSwain and Avalos were identified as suspects," HPD says.
Two other people were wounded in that incident.
