Three people have been charged with the murder for the late Friday shooting death of 16-year-old Ramon Breceda in the Little Village neighborhood, authorities said.

Andrew Anania, 18, and two 15-year-old boys were each charged with first-degree murder, according to police, who were not releasing the names of the 15-year-olds because they are juveniles.

Breceda and two others were in the 2400 block of South Washtenaw when at least two males walked up and opened fire about 11:30 p.m. Friday, authorities said.

Breceda, of the 2700 block of West 23rd Street, was shot in the chest and died Saturday at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, authorities said.

Breceda’s acquaintances were wounded but survived, police said. A 15-year-old boy was shot in the buttocks and an 18-year-old man was shot in the arm, police said.

Police said the shooting could be gang related.

Anania, of the 2400 block of South Troy Street, is scheduled to appear for a bond hearing Sunday, police said.
