GARY — Lawrence McIntosh managed to run across the street trying to escape the man who shot him in the face outside Rico’s Pizza Thursday afternoon.
Surrounded by employees of the Black Oak eatery, the 28-year-old Gary man wanted just one thing.
“He asked us to call his mother,” Rico’s worker Juanita Hernandez said Friday.
McIntosh died hours later at The Methodist Hospital Northlake campus.
His alleged killer is in custody, recovering from injuries he received when he crashed his car while fleeing police.
Daryl Henderson, 26, is expected to be charged with murder and other offenses this weekend, police said.
Witnesses said Henderson approached McIntosh at Party Liquors, which is next door the pizzeria and wanted McIntosh to buy him a beer.
Then in Rico’s, Henderson continued to harass McIntosh until they both left the business at 25th Avenue and Burr Street.
Outside, witnesses said, Henderson shot McIntosh in the face, then jumped into a red Chevrolet Cavalier.
Cpl. Don Rosenski and Patrolman Anthony Boleware chased Henderson in a 6-mile circle that ended at the intersection where the shooting occurred.
Detective James Bond questioned several witnesses Friday morning as he prepared to present evidence to prosecutors.
“It would be nice if we had this type of cooperation in every case. It shows what we can do when the community and police work together,” Bond said.
