Joshua Poe has been charged with murder in an Ashburn shooting that left Curtis Lyons dead Wednesday afternoon.

Poe, 26, is accused of shooting Lyons and another man during an argument in the 3100 block of West 84th Place about 3:10 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said.

Lyons, 20, of the 8000 block of South Richmond Street, was shot in the head and died at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The other man, 19, was shot in the leg and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for treatment, police said.

Poe, who lived on the block, was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated discharge of a firearm, police said. He was on parole for a stolen weapons conviction, authorities said.

Poe is expected to appear in court Friday for a bond hearing.
