CHICAGO (STMW) — Bond was denied Saturday for a man charged in a fatal shooting that killed a longtime UPS worker during an attempted robbery Tuesday night in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.
Derrick Williams, 20, of the 1600 block of South Spaulding Avenue, appeared for a bond hearing Saturday at the Cook County courthouse.
Rayshon Williams and Derrick Williams were each charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery, authorities said.
Rayshon Williams appeared Friday before Judge Laura Sullivan wearing a navy blue juvenile detention center T-shirt and sweat pants and was ordered held on $1 million bond.
The Williams were in a car looking for someone to rob when they saw Michael Sullivan walking to the train in the 4200 block of West Lake Street about 11:05 p.m. Tuesday, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Sara Ondera.
Sullivan was walking to the Green Line Pulaski station to take the train to his job at UPS, where he worked for 32 years, his family said.
Rayshon Williams exited the car and grabbed Sullivan, who pulled away and kept walking, Ondera said. Rayshon Williams got back in the car and the accomplice drove towards Sullivan, prosecutors said.
Derrick Williams got out of the car and shot Sullivan in the face, authorities said.
Sullivan, of the 4300 block of West Maypole Avenue, was dead on the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
