A man has been charged with gunning down another man last month at a West Englewood gas station on the South Side.

Tavaris Dean, 21, was jailed on a $1 million bond Wednesday for the Oct. 13 shooting of 22-year-old Devante Norwood, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County sheriff’s office.

About 10 p.m., Norwood was in the lot of the station in the 7000 block of South Ashland when someone walked up, shot him twice in the head and then took off in a black SUV, authorities said. Police said the attack was gang-related.

Norwood, of the 6800 block of South Bishop, died at the scene at 10:22 p.m.

Dean, of the 1300 block of South Karlov, was charged with first-degree murder and obstructing justice by destroying evidence, police said. His next court date is Dec. 5.
