A west suburban man has been arrested in Michigan and charged with killing Sami Talab Salaymeh and injuring a woman in a shooting last month in the South Loop.

Norberto Frausto, 37, was arrested Wednesday after he was identified as the shooter in the June 6 shooting in the 2300 block of South Michigan, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

Frausto drove his vehicle alongside a pickup at 3:58 a.m. before firing several shots into the truck and driving away, police said.

Salaymeh, 27, was shot in the abdomen and arm, while a 23-year-old woman was shot in the right leg, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
