CHICAGO (CBS) – Bond was set at $2 million on Thursday for a 25-year-old man accused of acting as the getaway driver in a shooting that left one man dead and three other people injured on the West Side.
Deon Mathis, an admitted gang member, was charged with murder and attempted murder in the Dec. 13 shooting in the 4200 block of West Wilcox Street.
At a bond hearing on Thursday, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Melissa Howlett said Mathis and the gunman were out looking for the people responsible for killing Mathis’ cousin, when they came upon a group of people standing on the street on Wilcox.
After the gunman fired at the group, he got back in the car and Mathis, 25, drove away, Howlett said.
Killed was Cometra Hollins, 34, who was able to make a 911 call after he was shot three times. Three other men, all in their 40s, were shot but survived.
The gunman has not been charged.
