A Gage Park man has been charged with the shooting death of a 13-year-old boy in the Back of the Yards neighborhood earlier this year. 
Leo Betancourt

Leo Betancourt was shot to death on Ashland Avenue near 45th Street on May 2. He was in a car with two others when he was hit, and the driver brought the boy to a fire station at 44th Street and Ashland. The boy was taken to Stroger Hospital and pronounced dead.

Robert Morales, 26, was charged with murder in the boy's shooting and two counts of attempted murder because there were two other people in the car he did not hit, police said.

Morales was arrested at Mount Sinai Hospital. He accidentally shot himself in the chest about 4 p.m. Saturday near his home in the 4500 block of South Fairfield Avenue, police said.

He first told police he was outside when someone shot him, police said.

His girlfriend told police at the scene that he had shot himself and led them to a back bedroom where police found a Mossberg International 715T .22-caliber long rifle with an 18" barrel, according to the arrest report.

His bail was set at $2 million in a court appearance Monday.
