Teen facing gun charge in Endia Martin case put on house arrest

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A Cook County juvenile court judge put a 17-year-old boy, among several charged in the shooting death last month of 14-year-old Endia Martin, under house arrest, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

The judge ordered the teen, whom the Sun-Times isn’t naming because he’s been charged as a juvenile, be placed on electronic monitoring, specifying he must remain at home, except for school, doctor’s appointments and church.

The boy, who allegedly had the murder weapon for a brief period, had jumped on top of a squad car that pursued him after the April 28 shooting, Cook County prosecutors said.

The boy ended up falling off the squad car.

He is facing aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm and criminal damage to property charges.

Another 14-year-old girl is charged with shooting Endia, her onetime friend, in the back after a feud on Facebook, authorities said.

The suspected shooter’s uncle also was arrested and charged in the case. Before the 14-year-old suspect went to confront two girls about an ongoing dispute she had with them about a boy, she asked Donnell Flora for a gun, prosecutors said.

Flora, 25, who is wheelchair-bound, agreed with his niece’s request and got on a bus with what it thought to be the .38-caliber revolver used in the slaying, authorities said.

Once at the 900 block of Garfield Boulevard, Flora gave the girl the gun before the shooting, prosecutors said.

After the shooting, Flora took the gun back - before handing it off to the 17-year-old boy.

Flora, of the 8300 block of South Buffalo Avenue, is charged with murder, attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm. He allegedly confessed to giving the gun to his niece.
