Calumet City officers were called to assist Hammond police with reports of a crash and a gunshot victim at 10:21 a.m. Tuesday near Stateline Road and Waltham Street, police said.

Authorities found 18-year-old Gibson lying on the ground between two buildings in the first block of Waltham Avenue in Hammond, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He gave responding officers a description of his shooter.

Gibson, who lived in University Park, was taken to Community Hospital in Munster, Indiana, authorities said. He was transferred to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 3:07 p.m.

An autopsy Wednesday found Gibson died of a gunshot wound to his back, according to the medical examiner’s office.

A short time after Gibson was found, investigators located Redmond, who matched the shooter’s description, near the Calumet City American Legion post, 950 Legion Drive, police said.

Redmond, who lived in Griffith, Indiana, had a handgun on him at the time of his arrest, police said.

Judge Luciano Panici ordered Redmond held without bail during a hearing Thursday at the Markham Courthouse, according to Cook County court records. His next court date was set for March 13.
