A man who allegedly robbed two men at gunpoint at an Aurora party last weekend has been charged, authorities said.

Police reported that Marcus L. Hall, 21, held two 20-year-old men at gunpoint the night of the party around 12:35 a.m. outside of a rental hall in the 600 block of North Lake Street. About $3,300 in jewelry, cash and other items was taken from the men, police said.

No injuries were reported.

Police said Hall, of Joliet, along with others at the party ran toward Illinois Avenue and across Lake Street when a disturbance occurred inside the hall.

A fight broke out on the east side of Lake Street where at least one shot was fired, striking 23-year-old Derrick Page, of Plainfield, in the head. Page died the next day as a result of the gunshot wound, police said.

Police said Hall was taken into custody without incident during a traffic stop in the area of River Street and West Park Avenue about 10 minutes after the shooting.

No charges have been filed in connection to the homicide.

Hall is currently being held in the Kane County Correctional Center in St. Charles on two Class-X felonies, police said.

Aurora police continue to ask anyone with information to call investigators at (630) 892-550.
