Man Convicted in Keg Murder Caught With Ammunition, Police Say
Antoine Hill, who was convicted in the 2005 murder of Robert Gresham at the Keg in Evanston, was recently charged with unlawful use of a weapon after a parole check at his Chicago residence.
The man convicted of a 2005 murder in Evanston, now out on parole, was arrested Friday when corrections officers found ammunition at his home, according to police.
Antoine Brian Hill, 27, was arrested and charged with unlawful use of a weapon at 9 a.m. Dec. 14, after parole officers discovered the ammunition at his Chicago home during a routine parole check, police said.
Hill had been released on parole Sept. 24 after serving six years of an 18-year prison sentence on charges of second-degree murder, according to the Illinois Department of Corrections. According to court documents, Hill shot and killed 22-year-old Evanston resident Robert Gresham after the two got into an argument at the Keg in fall 2005. Hill was 19 and an Evanston resident at the time.
Police have said that several recent shootings in Evanston may be part of an extended family feud that traces back to the murder of Gresham in 2005. According to Evanston Police Cmdr. Jason Parrott, the victims of four more shootings between 2010 and 2012 have family ties with either Gresham or Hill. Those victims include Justin Murray and Javar Bamberg, two Evanston men who were shot and killed within the last two weeks.
