Michael Joseph Hanes-White was a suspect in a man’s killing during a robbery and was himself killed in the same circumstances about a year later, police said.

Hanes-White, one of three men who police allege were suspects in a 2019 Arlington killing, was shot to death in Fort Worth in October.

Hanes-White, 18, was slain in a car outside Homan Grocery in the 1500 block of Homan Avenue on Oct. 25, Fort Worth police have said. Hanes-White was shot in his back, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Police have arrested Brian Jones, 17, in Hanes-White’s homicide, and Tarrant County prosecutors on Nov. 5 charged him with capital murder.

The two other suspects in Hector Salazar’s killing on Nov. 16, 2019, in the 2400 block of Summer Place Drive in Arlington, have been arrested in the last two weeks. Kejuan McCray, 20, was arrested on Monday, and Tevin Phillips, 19, was arrested on Nov. 5.

McCray and Phillips are accused in Salazar’s shooting death in November 2019 during an attempted robbery involving drugs, according to arrest warrant affidavits written by Arlington police Detective Julia Hall.

Salazar, 18, died at the scene after a gun battle with the suspects.

Phillips was charged with murder on Monday, the anniversary of Salazar’s killing, and McCray was arrested on suspicion of that crime.

A witness told Hall that he and Salazar sold drugs. A person nicknamed “NFL” contacted them and agreed to buy their product.

The witness and Salazar were waiting when a vehicle pulled up with five men, and a few of them left the vehicle and opened fire.

Salazar returned fire before he was shot and died. The witness said he saw one of the suspects fall to the ground before getting up and getting back in the car, according to the affidavit. The suspects left the scene.

McCray had been shot in the leg and arrived at Mansfield Methodist Hospital, police said.

McCray initially told authorities that he and some friends had been walking down a street in North Richland Hills or Mansfield when unknown suspects tried to rob them and then began shooting.

An Arlington Heights man is dead after a Metra train struck his vehicle Thursday afternoon west of downtown Arlington Heights, officials said.

The inbound train struck the Mercedes sedan just after 2 p.m. where the tracks intersect with Euclid Avenue, according to Metra spokeswoman Katie Dahlstrom. The train pushed the vehicle until stopping near the intersection with Ridge Avenue, she said.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

 

The Cook County medical examiner’s office on Thursday evening identified the driver as Leonard Jennings Hauskey, 86.

No one else was in the car, Dahlstrom said.

Metra police were leading the investigation, with support from Arlington Heights police, who managed traffic control near the scene. Arlington Heights and Rolling Meadows firefighters also were dispatched to the crash with entrapment.

At least 40 passengers were onboard Train No. 6444, headed to downtown Chicago on the Union Pacific Northwest Line. Among them were sisters

Maddison and MacKenzie Miller of Denver, Colorado, who were sitting in one of the middle train cars when the conductor sounded the horn and hit the brakes, causing passengers to lunge forward.

“When he was blowing the horn and then we felt that impact, I knew something wasn’t right,” Maddison said.

The train was scheduled to stop at the Arlington Heights station at 2:09 p.m. and arrive at the Ogilvie Transportation Center at 3 p.m. The train was stopped during the crash investigation, but by 4 p.m., inbound and outbound trains were cleared to proceed through the area at restricted speeds, officials said. Those trains operated with extensive delays throughout the afternoon.

Northwest Highway was closed between Euclid and Chestnut avenues during the investigation.
