MILWAUKEE — The man wanted in connection with a fatal double shooting that stemmed from a traffic crash that killed a two-year-old boy reportedly committed suicide on Thursday as police attempted to enter his motel room in Chicago, authorities told WITI. Ricky Chiles was found in a motel room with his girlfriend where he took his own life. Chiles was wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of 40-year-old Archie Brown and 15-year-old Rasheed Chiles.

Both victims were shot after Brown struck and killed two-year-old Damani Terry on April 12.

“This is a sad example is what we get when we have folks who decide to use their guns to address grievances,” said Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn. 

Ricky Chiles was the uncle of 15-year-old Rasheed Chiles and the two-year-old victim.

Chiles was released from prison in August 2013 after two years behind bars for serving as the getaway driver in a 2011 bank robbery.
