Deonta Noble was ordered held without bond Wednesday after prosecutors said he fatally shot William Allen this month in the South Chicago neighborhood.

Allen was talking with a 19-year-old woman and 47-year-old man on a porch near East 80th Street and South Muskegon Avenue when Noble and an acquaintance approached and asked Allen about his gang affiliation about 11:20 p.m., authorities said.

When Noble’s acquaintance accused Allen of being affiliated with the Mafia gang the two opened fire on Allen and the woman, said Assistant State’s Attorney Beth Novy.

Allen, 25, of the 3500 block of South State Street, was shot in the head and hand and died the next day at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Allen, who had a twin brother, worked two jobs to help support his daughter, according to a page.

The man and woman were also wounded, but survived, police said.

Witnesses identified Noble and his acquaintance, and provided police with photos from their Facebook pages, Novy said. They later identified Noble in a lineup.

Noble, 17, of the 7500 block of South Phillips Avenue, was charged with murder and Judge Donald Panarese ordered him held without bond on Wednesday.

He had previously been convicted of residential burglary in 2009 and criminal trespass to a vehicle in 2008.

Noble’s acquaintance has not yet been charged.
