COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A suburban man has been charged with murdering 20-year-old Angelo Frazier on Christmas Day in 2015.

Anthony Sanders, 21, of suburban Harvey, is being held on $1 million bail pending trial.

According to prosecutors, Sanders and Frazier were selling drugs out of a witness' apartment in the 700 block of West 71st Street about 11:40 a.m. Dec. 25, 2015. The witness was home at the time.

At one point, Sanders and Frazier got into an argument over a pair of keys and which man would sell drugs from the apartment that day, Assistant State's Attorney Ed Murillo said during a bond hearing Tuesday.

The witness walked into a bathroom, where he could still hear Sanders and Frazier argue, prosecutors said. The witness then heard a single gunshot and left the bathroom to see Sanders and Frazier running away from the apartment.

According to Murillo, Frazier repeatedly yelled that Sanders had shot him as Frazier limped to a nearby strip mall, where he collapsed in a parking lot in the 7000 block of South Halsted Street.

Frazier was able to tell assisting witnesses that Sanders shot him, prosecutors said.

Frazier, of south suburban University Park, was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital at 12:24 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Sanders was arrested this week and charged with first-degree murder.

Cook County Judge Donald Panarese Jr. on Tuesday set bail at $1 million.
