The mother of two men, both of whom were found fatally shot Tuesday evening after police responded to a report of a home invasion in Country Club Hills, gave a message to her sons' killer.
"I just want to tell the people that did this that you can probably run and hide from the police, but you can't run and hide from God," said Tracy Rogers. "So you're gonna have to pay, one way or the other."
Officers were called at about 7:30 p.m. to a residence in the 19000 block of Farmcrest for a report of a home invasion, the Country Club Hills Police Department said in a release.
There, two men were found inside the home with gunshot wounds, according to police. They were taken to area hospitals for treatment, but both were pronounced dead, the Cook County Medical Examiner's office reported Wednesday.

They were identified as 20-year-old Kimani Whalum and 22-year-old Clarence Whalum, the medical examiner's office said.
"My parents are heartbroken. My daughter is devastated. She is pregnant and she is due to have her baby in two days and this is a devastating toll on just all of us," Rogers said.
Police have released few details surrounding what happened but said the shooting is under investigation. The South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force is also working on the case.
