    Charges Filed in UIC Hospital Shooting

    First-degree murder charges were filed Saturday against a West Side man who police said shot and killed his ex-wife in the parking garage of the University of Illinois Chicago Medical Center a day earlier.

    Earl Roberts, 47, of the 5000 block of West Adams Street was charged with killing Angela Bonds-Roberts, 48.

    The early-morning shooting put the hospital into lockdown for several hours. Roberts, a 15-year employee with knowledge of the medical center and its network of underground tunnels, fled after the shooting, authorities said.

    He was ultimately found and arrested after a chase, police said.

    Roberts is scheduled to make an appearance in bond court on Sunday.
