CHICAGO — A man has been charged with killing another man in 2009 when he was 16 years old.
Dennis Laird, 20, is charged with murdering 29-year-old Andre Jamison on Aug. 25, 2009, in the 2600 block of East 87th Street, according to police and the Tribune.
The shooting occurred about 11:40 p.m. when Laird shot Jamison in the back while he was on the sidewalk, police said. Jamison was later declared dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
