A man has been charged with killing Vincent Davis Sr. and critically wounding a woman in a Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood shooting over the summer on the South Side.

Devontay Murray, 19, faces counts of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder for the July 25 attack near his home in the 6600 block of South Michigan, according to Chicago Police.

About 4:30 p.m., the 43-year-old Davis was sitting in a vehicle with a 22-year-old woman when someone opened fire, hitting Davis multiple times and the woman in the chest, authorities said at the time.

Davis, known to friends as “Vinny,” lived in the 7500 block of South Evans. He died at the scene at 5 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The woman was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

About two weeks after the shooting, Murray was arrested and charged with robbing someone near a school or place of worship on the same block, court records show. He pleaded guilty and was serving a four-year sentence at the downstate Vandalia Correctional Center when he was charged with the murder.

Murray is now being held at the Cook County Jail. His next court date is Jan. 3, 2017.
