(Scroll down for video) Police in Illinois, have arrested a teenager for the murder of four people.

Chicago police believe that the teenager who shot and killed four men at a South Side restaurant, wanted to avenge the fatal shooting of his father the night before.

Witnesses identified 19-year-old Maurice Harris, as the lone gunman. Two of the victims were identified as brothers who were killed as they went to visit their mother at her job.

The brothers were at Nadia Fish and Chicken restaurant on 75th Street and Coles Avenue at 3:30 p.m., where their mother worked. Harris opened the front door and killed them, prosecutors said.

One day before the shooting, Harris’ father, 37-year-old Jerry Jacobs, was shot and killed on 79th Street and South Phillips Avenue.

Although Harris did not reveal the motive, police believe that the two incidents are gang related.

Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said Harris has an extensive juvenile record, but this is the first time he has been arrested and charged as an adult.
