Demonte Williams, Murder Suspect, Caught Because Of Distinctive Neck Tattoo (PHOTO)

A bright red neck tattoo may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but a Chicago man may be rethinking his body ink after it helped police arrest him on a murder charge.

Demonte Williams, 23, has been charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder in a shooting at a South Side Walgreens that left a 30-year-old man dead and his 54-year-old uncle wounded, the Chicago Tribune reports. The uncle, Michael Stallworth, identified Williams in a lineup after he was arrested Sunday.

Stallworth and his nephew, Willie Stallworth, were in the parking lot of the Walgreens at 7111 S. Western Ave. on June 4 when a man shot at both of them in what was believed to have been a robbery attempt, CBS Chicago reports.

Prosecutors say a witness gave police a detailed description of the red, five-pointed star tattoo on Williams' neck, according to WGN.

Williams was ordered held without bond, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He was convicted of aggravated unlawful restraint and misdemeanor resisting arrest in 2009 and was found delinquent as a juvenile for robbery in 2004.
