Tajuan Murry | Illinois Department of Corrections
A 25-year-old man from Zion has been charged with the murder of Marty Burtin, 29, of Bellwood. According to prosecutors, Tajuan Murry shot Burtin 15 times outside of an apartment complex on the 3900 block of Warren Avenue in Bellwood at around 12:45 a.m. on Aug. 4.
Murry, who faces first-degree murder in connection to last Thursday’s shooting, was out on parole for three armed robbery convictions.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “Burtin was driving a van in Bellwood with three passengers and parked near the Warren Avenue apartment complex, prosecutors said. Shortly after, both Burtin and the other shooting victim had a conversation with Murry’s older brother. Video surveillance then shows Murry’s older brother having a conversation with Murry, prosecutors said.”
