An 18-year-old man is the third person to be charged with killing three people and wounding two others in a shooting two months ago during a barbecue in the South Side Fuller Park neighborhood.

Calvan Colbert has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of Ayanna Northern, Antian Hardmon and Tyrone Spikes; and two counts of aggravated battery with great bodily harm, according to Chicago Police.

Anthony Jackson, 20; and Lawrence Brown, 22, were charged with three counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder, and two counts of aggravated battery in October. Brown is also charged with one count of unlawful use and possession of a weapon by a felon, police said.

Five people were shot about 12:10 a.m. on Sept. 29 in the 300 block of West 42nd Street when two men opened fire from an alley on about 30 people at a barbecue, police said at the time. The barbecue was commemorating someone who died in a crash years ago.
