A 17-year-old boy and a South Side man have been charged with fatally shooting Oscar Garcia in 2014 in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

Jacob Morales, 18; and the teen are charged with first-degree murder for the Nov. 28, 2014, shooting, a statement from Chicago Police said.

About 11 p.m., Morales and the boy approached the 18-year-old Garcia in the 3600 block of West 25th Street and started talking to him, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. One of the suspects then pulled out a handgun and fired shots, striking Garcia under the right eye.

Garcia, who lived in the 2800 block of South Millard, was dead at the scene, authorities said.

Bond for Morales was set at $1 million Thursday, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. His next court date is Dec. 29. Court information on the teen was not immediately available.
