Garland Benson, 26, is charged with one count of first-degree murder for the fatal May 14 shooting in the 6400 block of South Damen, authorities said.

About 7:25 p.m., the 19-year-old Randolph was involved in a fight with “several” people at the Damen location when someone shot him in the back of the head, police said at the time.

Randolph was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:09 p.m., the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He lived on the same block as the shooting.

Benson, of the 6200 block of South Seeley, was ordered held without bond Monday at a hearing before Judge Peggy Chiampas, according to court records. He will next appear in court for a preliminary hearing Aug. 7.
