CHICAGO — Authorities say a 19-year-old man charged in the fatal shootings of four men at or near a Chicago restaurant did it to avenge his father's death.

Maurice Harris is charged with four counts of first-degree murder in connection with the March 30 slayings.

Two victims were found dead inside the restaurant, a third was found unresponsive outside and a fourth was found unresponsive a block away. They included two brothers whose mother worked at the restaurant.
