A South Side man was charged with murder Friday for allegedly chasing down a man walking on a Bronzeville neighborhood sidewalk and shooting him to death on New Year’s Day.

Anthony Robinson, 20, of the 5300 block of South Hoyne Avenue, was charged with one count of first-degree murder, police said. He is expected to appear for a bond hearing Saturday.

Robinson, Clyde Jackson and a third man are accused of murdering 28-year-old Kelvin Jemison on Jan. 1 in the 4500 block of South Champlain Avenue.

Jemison was walking with a friend when a car with four people inside passed them twice then began following them, according to court documents.

The dusty, black, four-door car stopped near Jemison and his friend about 2:45 p.m. Jan. 1 and Clyde Jackson and another backseat passenger exited the car and acted as a lookout for front seat passenger Robinson, who got out of the car and opened fire on the two, according to court documents.

Robinson shot Jemison as he attempted to run away, then stood over him and shot him several more times, according to court documents.

Jemison, 28, was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was declared dead, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Security video captured the murder and Jackson was identified as one of the people acting as a lookout, according to the state’s attorney’s office.

Jackson, 28, of the 4500 block of South Drexel Boulevard, was also charged with one count of first-degree murder, police said.

On Friday, Judge Donald Panarese Jr. ordered Jackson held on $1 million bond, said Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton.

Jackson was also ordered held without bond for the probation violation, authorities said. He was serving two years probation for aggravated robbery.

The other lookout man has been identified, but is not in custody, officials said.
