Elvin L. Prince drove a car into 17-year-old Kayshaun Hall after an accomplice shot him multiple times Monday night in the Ashburn neighborhood.

Hall was walking with two other people in an alley in the 8400 block of South Kedzie Avenue about 5:05 p.m. Monday when Prince drove past several times in a silver Nissan while the passengers inside gave Hall “mean looks,” Assistant State’s Attorney Beth Novy said.

Prince eventually stopped the Nissan and a front passenger then exited and shot Hall in the buttocks and torso, Novy said. Prince then allegedly drove the car into Hall twice as he tried to escape.

Hall, of the 2800 block of West 71st Street, died at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy determined Hall died of multiple gunshot wounds and the death was ruled a homicide.

Prince abandoned the Nissan a short time later and attempted to run away, Novy said. Officers saw him and detained him about 10 minutes after the shooting.

Prince was allegedly still holding the keys to the Nissan, and witnesses identified him as the shooter, Novy said.

Prince, 27, of the 3000 block of West 79th Place, was charged with first-degree murder and Judge James Brown ordered him held on $1 million bond Wednesday afternoon.
