CHICAGO — Authorities have charged a second man in the murder of a 19-year-old man at an Englewood birthday party in May.
Dayvon Bennett, 19, of Hazel Crest, was charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shooting death of Malcolm Stuckey on May 29, police said. Earlier this week, police charged Michael Wade, 23, of the 7200 block of South Champlain Avenue, with the same crimes.
Two other people were wounded in the shooting, which took place at a birthday party in the 5700 block of South LaSalle Street.
Authorities said Bennett, an alleged Black Disciple gang member, and Wade attended the birthday party, but left when they saw someone from a rival gang. They allegedly returned an hour later and fired on the crowd.
Stuckey and two friends were on the porch, prosecutors said Tuesday. The two gunmen opened fire, striking a 24-year-old man in the foot and a 23-year-old man in the head and body as they tried to get away.
Stuckey, hit by several bullets, including one that struck him below the right ear, was declared dead on the scene.
Wade was ordered held without bail Tuesday. Bennett, in court Thursday, was ordered held without bail.
