A homicide suspect was arrested Monday after he allegedly bragged to a woman about the shooting.
The victim, Willie Bacon, was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest on the 1000 block of Baldwin Street and was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency medical service personnel.
A witness later told investigators Jamaal Mayes, 34, had come to her home on the 700 block of W 12th Street Courts and bragged about shooting someone near the Community Kitchen.
The witness said he also showed the firearm and gave her the spent shell casing, which she then gave to police.
Police took Mayes into custody less than an hour later and he voluntarily admitted to shooting Bacon over an unpaid loan.
He also said Bacon had a large knife, but no knife was found at the scene.
