Members of the Cook County Board planned to honor an Orland Park man for his bravery Wednesday.

Jason McDaniel confronted and killed an armed robber believed to have been the so-called 'Honeybee' killer.

In December, McDaniel took on Gary Amaya during an attempted armed robbery at an Orland Park tanning salon. The gun was later traced back to a series of October shootings in Chicago's southern suburbs and Indiana.

Those shootings left one person dead and two others wounded.
