A man charged with fatally shooting another man Thursday afternoon during a home invasion in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side has been ordered held without bond.

Waddel Adams, 31, has been charged with single counts of first-degree murder, murder while committing another forcible felony, home invasion with a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to Chicago Police.

On Saturday, he was ordered held in Cook County Jail without bond, court records show.

Adams was identified as the armed suspect who forced his way into 30-year-old Bobby Lloyd’s apartment at 11:47 a.m. Thursday in the 6500 block of South Laflin, police said. Adams allegedly fired a gun at Lloyd, striking him multiple times in the chest and torso.

Lloyd was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died about an hour later, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy determined he died of multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.

Adams, who lives in Englewood, was arrested about 15 minutes after the shooting in the 6700 block of South Throop, police said.

He is due back in court on Tuesday, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office.
