Marvin Lee, 34, faces one count of first-degree murder, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

About noon Saturday, Lee opened fire during an argument with a 25-year-old man inside an apartment in the 700 block of East 47th Street, police said.

The victim suffered three gunshot wounds, and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:43 p.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. His name was not released as of early Tuesday pending notification of family.

Police said the shooter was the one who called police, saying a man had broken into his home, but it was later discovered the two knew each other and had had an altercation prior to the shooting.

Lee, who lives on the same block as the shooting, appeared in bond court Sunday, where a judge ordered him held without bond, according to police and the Cook County’s sheriff’s office. He was due back in court Monday.
