CHICAGO — Police have charged a second man in the shooting death of Michael Sullivan, a longtime UPS worker shot on his way to work Tuesday night.
Derrick Williams, 20, of the 1600 block of South Spaulding Avenue, was charged with first-degree murder, as well as attempted robbery, police said.
On Thursday night, police charged Rayshon Williams, 16, in Sullivan's death. It is unclear if the two are related. He was ordered held on $1 million bail Friday.
Sullivan, 53, worked for UPS for more than 30 years, sorting boxes at the company's Near West Side customer service center. He was walking to the "L" in the 4200 block of West Lake Street when he was attacked by two people around 11 p.m.
Prosecutors said Rayshon Williams got out of a car and approached Sullivan, grabbed his arm and demanded money. Sullivan pulled away, and the would-be robber returned to the car.
The other suspect — Derrick Williams — then followed Sullivan in the car, put it in park, got out and shot him, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said Rayshon Williams lives with his grandmother, a retired post office worker. He was charged as an adult with first-degree murder, attempted robbery, possession of a stolen vehicle and criminal damage to government property, prosecutors said.
Sullivan was pronounced dead on the scene at 11:26 p.m.
The shooting was caught on surveillance video, officials said, and Rayshon Williams allegedly admitted to his role.
Derrick Williams is expected to appear in bond court Saturday.
