William Stovall was arrested Thursday morning for the July 9, 2016, shooting that killed Fairley and wounded a 15-year-old boy, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Stovall was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery, police said.

Fairley and the teen were playing basketball about 10:45 p.m. at Ogden Park in the 6500 block of South Racine when they both heard gunfire rang out, police said at the time.

Fairley was shot in the chest and left arm, and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 12:03 a.m. the next day, authorities said. He lived in the West Englewood neighborhood.

Fairley, a graduate of Kenwood Academy High School, also studied at Daley College. He took part in the Department of Family and Support Services’ Phalanx Family Services (Youth Services) program, where was honored in 2015 by “Magic” Johnson as one of the stars of the One Summer PLUS program.

The 15-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the left arm and later showed up at Holy Cross Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

Bond was denied for Stovall during a court appearance Saturday, according to Cook County sheriff’s office records.
