Detectives later determined the victim was shot by Jamerson as a result of an argument that took place, officials said. The victim, Kevin Pruitt, 27, was flown from Northlake to a hospital in Chicago, where he would later die from his injuries, authorities said.

Jamerson was arrested and charged with murder, police said. She is currently being held in the Lake County Jail, officials said.
