A Cook County Correctional Officer is in the Lake County Jail after an alleged road rage incident left one man dead in Hammond Thursday night.  A 23-year-old East Chicago man was killed.  Hammond Police say the fatal shooting occurred on Indianapolis Boulevard in far north Hammond, and 23-year-old Montrell Moss was pronounced dead at an area hospital less than an hour later. On Saturday, authorities say 61-year-old Edgar Singleton was charged with one count of murder.  The Sheriffs Office in Cook County says the suspect has been de-deputized and the sheriffs office is in the process of terminating his employment.
