Terrell Boyd | Cook County sheriff’s office

A man has been charged with shooting another man to death last summer in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

Terrell Boyd, 26, is charged with first-degree murder for the shooting death of 56-year-old Albert Glover on June 26, 2014, according to court records and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Glover was outside his home in the 100 block of North Leamington Avenue at 1:36 p.m. when Boyd and another person got out of a van in the alley behind Glover’s home and walked around the corner onto Leamington, prosecutors said. They walked up to Glover, and Boyd’s accomplice pulled out a gun, threatened Glover and demanded that Glover go into his house with them.

Boyd struggled with Glover and the other person shot Glover in the leg, prosecutors said. Glover fell to the ground and Boyd shot him in the back, prosecutors said. The attackers then ran away.

Glover was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:21 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said.

Boyd was ordered held without bond at a hearing Friday, according to prosecutors. His accomplice and the person driving the van remain at large.
