A 16-year-old boy has been charged with fatally shooting Jermaine Brown in May in the Washington Park neighborhood on the South Side.
The teenager faces felony counts of first-degree murder and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, according to Chicago Police. The boy, who was not identified because of his age, was also charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of ammunition.
At 7:42 p.m. on May 8, someone walked up to the 23-year-old Brown in the 5400 block of South Indiana and opened fire, authorities said at the time.
Brown, who lived in the same neighborhood, was shot multiple times and died at the scene at 7:48 p.m., police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy ruled his death a homicide.
