CHICAGO (CBS) — An 18-year-old man has been charged with killing former U.S. Marine Mamadou Balde earlier this week, by pushing him in front of a moving CTA train downtown.
Balde, 29, died at the Jackson Red Line stop on Tuesday, after he tried to walk away from a fight on the platform. Police said Balde was on the platform around 5:15 p.m., when 18-year-old Ryan Munn and two other assailants came up to him.
Police said Munn punched Balde, and pushed him in front of a train.
Munn was arrested Friday night after detectives identified him as Balde’s killer, police said. He has been charged with one count of first-degree murder.
Munn is expected to appear for a bond hearing Sunday afternoon.
