CHICAGO — A man charged with a May homicide was out on the streets after posting bail for an earlier attempted murder charge when he was allegedly killed another man, according to court documents.
Roman Foreman, 25, was charged with first-degree murder late Saturday, police said.
Forman allegedly shot Freddie Walton in a drive-by shooting in the 12200 block of South Halsted Street in West Pullman on May 29 about 1:08 p.m. A police document lists Walton's age as 27, though the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office previously said he was 17.
Walton was pronounced dead at Roseland Community Hospital after suffering bullet wounds to his neck, abdomen, hip, left bicep and forearm and right hand, according to police documents.
The same day as the alleged murder, Foreman also shot a 21-year-old man in his groin in the 12200 block of South Carpenter Street, according to police documents.
Court documents note Foreman was earlier charged with attempted murder and posted bail. While free on bail, Foreman allegedly shot Walton. The court documents, however, do not specify when Foreman was charged with attempted murder, and notes the case is pending.
He was free on bail when he was arrested on a warrant Friday, according to court documents. Police pulled him over in a Ford blue truck in the 4600 block of South Indiana Avenue and took him into custody.
Judge James Brown ordered Foreman, of the 4600 block of South Evans Avenue, held without bail.
