By Taylor Utzig, Editor

Nathanial Richardson has been arrested in connection with a shooting on Sept. 11 in which couple were shot in their car while driving on the 1600 block of West Juneway Terrace.

The 24-year-old man and 31-year-old woman were driving by a roadside memorial when they were shot after offending the shooter with the loud, pumping music in their car.

The memorial in Rogers Park was for a 19-year-old slain gang member.

A DNAinfo article by Linze Rice reports the following details of the shooting:

The shooter was apparently “offended” by the song — and “boom, boom, boom,” police Officer Robert Dworak said Tuesday night at a community policing meeting.

Dworak didn’t identify the offending tune, but did tell residents the innocent victims — a 24-year-old man and 31-year-old woman — survived and are in good condition.

The couple are reported to be in good condition.
