CHICAGO -- Police say a man has been charged with murder and pretending to be an officer in the shooting death of a woman inside a Chicago Walgreens store.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Louis Hicks turned himself in Wednesday night.
The 33-year-old Hicks of Chicago is also charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. Police have said a store manager believed the woman, 46-year-old Sircie Varnado, was shoplifting and called Hicks instead of police. Hicks, who lives near the store, worked as a security guard in the past.
The Cook County medical examiner's office says Varnado died of a gunshot wound to the face in the June 13 shooting.
Hicks has a bond hearing scheduled for Friday. It wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney to comment on his behalf.
