CHICAGO (CBS) — A 27-year-old man has been ordered held without bail in the execution-style shooting of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee, and police said at least two others were involved in the “unfathomable crime,” including one in custody on an unrelated charge and another who remains at large.
Corey Morgan was charged with first-degree murder Friday morning. A Cook County judge denied him bail when he appeared for a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse later Friday.
“This is a crime that shook our city, and quite frankly as I talked about it, it was an act of barbarism; the assassination of a 9-year-old child as a gang retaliation to get back at his father,” Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Friday morning.
