HARVEY | Police arrested a 25-year-old man who is a suspect in a 2011 homicide and wanted on five additional outstanding arrest warrants.

Michael E. Brock, of Harvey, was arrested Friday night after officers found him hiding in a Chevrolet Tahoe in the 500 block of Torrence Avenue in Calumet City, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office. Officers were in Calumet City after receiving information that Brock was in the area.

Brock was wanted in the Nov. 19, 2011, fatal shooting of Andre Reynolds, 19, Harvey police said. Brock, Reynolds and others were involved in a fight that day outside a business near the intersection of 154th Street and Park Avenue, police said. 

According to Harvey police, Brock is accused of shooting Reynolds during the fight. Witnesses identified Brock by name and in a photo lineup, police said. 

Harvey police said officers previously tried to arrest Brock in the Harvey and Calumet City area, but officers were not successful. A warrant was issued for his arrest in May.

Brock also is facing attempted murder charges stemming from a case in Dolton, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office. Harvey police said Brock has at least four additional arrest warrants from other agencies.

Information about the Dolton attempted murder charge was not immediately available late Monday.  

Friday's arrest was made by the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force and the Cook County Sheriff's Office Central Warrant Unit. Brock was turned over to the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force.
