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.

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.
