CHICAGO (STMW) – Bond was set at $2 million Saturday for a known gang member who fatally shot a man in the South Side Englewood neighborhood last March.
A man was walking out of a store in the 1600 block of West 72nd Street at 10:08 a.m. on March 21 when someone ran up and shot him in the chest and head, police said.
Deon Freeman, 26, of the 4700 block of South Michigan Avenue was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 11 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
Jamony Nunley, a known gang member, was captured on a police camera, according to court records. After the shooting, he was seen entering and exiting an abandoned home in the 1500 block of West 72nd Street where a .40 caliber semi automatic pistol with Nunley’s fingerprints was found, according to court records. Shell casings found at the scene also matched the gun.
Nunley is scheduled to appear in court on May 13.
