COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — An Englewood man has been charged in the Gold Coast shooting that killed Larry Lawrence late last month.
Lawrence, 27, was standing outside a CVS at 1165 N. Clark St. about 8 p.m. June 29 when Charles Ternoir, 22, approached, and the men began to argue, Assistant State's Attorney Elena Gottreich said during a bond hearing Monday.
Ternoir is accused of pulling a gun and shooting Lawrence multiple times, causing Lawrence to stumble into the street. Ternoir then stood over Lawrence's immobile body and shot him again, prosecutors said.
Lawrence was later pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and the shooting was captured on nearby surveillance video.
Cameras from the CVS also caught Ternoir running into a parking lot, toward a garbage can, after the shooting, Gottreich said. Police found a .40 caliber handgun stuffed in that garbage can, Gottreich added, and officers recovered multiple .40 caliber shell casings at the scene.
Ternoir was arrested a block away minutes later after multiple witnesses identified him as the shooter, according to authorities.
Prosecutors this week charged Ternoir, of the 5600 block of South Green Street, with first-degree murder. It's not clear why there was a delay in filing charges.
Ternoir on Monday was ordered held without bail pending trial.
