CHICAGO — A man was charged with a shooting at an Englewood gas station that killed a man and left another injured last week near a Chicago Public Schools Safe Passage route.
Trevonti Carson, 26, was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, police said. He was arrested Saturday.
Police said Carson was identified as the one responsible for Wednesday's shooting at a Citgo gas station at 810 W. 59th St., which happened about 2:30 p.m. The violence was close to the Safe Passage route for students at Nicholson Technology Academy.
The bullets killed 21-year-old Devorite Diggins, of the 6200 block of South Aberdeen Street, who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office. An autopsy showed he died of multiple bullet wounds, the morgue said.
Another 21-year-old man was wounded in the shooting, police said. Police initially said he was taken in stable condition to Stroger Hospital after being shot in his arm.
Judge James Brown ordered Carson, of the 5700 block of South Green Street, held without bail in a bond hearing Monday.
