Servando Hamros Bio – Servando Hamros Wiki
Servando Hamros was shot in the head on July 14. Both families were in court Wednesday. Hamros’ father, Servando Camargo, said he’s happy an arrest has been made.
Servando Hamros was 29 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Authorities continue investigating the killing of a 29-year-old father who was gunned down in front of his young daughter as the two played Pokémon GO in an Illinois park.
A statement from police in Evanston alleges Servando Hamros was shot in the head on July 14 by Khiryan Monroe, 20. Hamros’ 7-year-old daughter witnessed the horrific crime. The fatal incident happened at around 9 p.m. that evening.
“An officer who was in the area heard the shots and immediately responded while notifying the Evanston Police Communications Center, which also received 911 calls about the incident,” the statement reads.
Police found Hamros “in the park along the North Shore Canal. Officers rendered first aid until the Evanston Fire Department arrived and took over life-saving efforts.”
Hamas was pronounced dead at the scene.
Hamros’ daughter was not physically injured in the shooting. She and her father had been playing Pokémon GO, an augmented reality mobile game.
Evanston Police allege Hamros was walking in the park with his daughter when the dad “had a confrontation with Khiyran Monroe. The initial confrontation appeared to stem from Hamros taking a video of Monroe and a female companion having sexual intercourse in the park.”
Police allege “the confrontation escalated and Hamros robbed Monroe.” The two men did not know each other before the killing. According to the statement, 17 rounds were fired at Hamros, who was struck once in one of his eyes. On July 25, Monroe, with his attorney present, surrendered to detectives.
The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office has charged Monroe with first-degree murder. Monroe is being held without bond. He is due in court on Aug. 16, when he’ll likely be asked to enter a plea to the single charge against him.
WLS-TV spoke to Monroe’s attorney, Herb Goldberg, who accused Hamas of stealing phones from his client and Monroe’s girlfriend. Goldberg also alleged that Hamros threatened the couple.
