(NEW YORK POST) – Police said an Illinois woman was gunned down in a home invasion after one of the residents flaunted cash awarded in a personal-injury settlement on social media.
Zavian D. Wells, 25, was charged with murder after he was arrested last month in connection with the Feb. 16 robbery in Zion, the Chicago Times reported.
The armed home invasion resulted in three shot, including 36-year-old Kaleah Beville, who died from multiple gunshot wounds later that day at a hospital.
Wells and another man allegedly broke into the apartment brandishing semi-automatic weapons and fired several rounds, according to a Tuesday report from the newspaper.
Authorities said the robbery was a “targeted incident” planned after Wells saw a photo of money on social media posted by a male resident living in Beville’s home. The man, whose name was not released, had reportedly won the cash in a personal-injury lawsuit, according to the Chicago Times.
The pair was caught on surveillance video fleeing the scene in a white Chevrolet Impala, which helped investigators track down Wells, according to police.
Wells, who is from Round Lake Beach, is being held on $3 million bond.
