Antonio Cole, 23, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Roland Hill, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Hill was on a motorcycle about 1 p.m. when he stopped at an intersection in the 4900 block of West Chicago Avenue and a vehicle pulled up alongside, police said.

Someone inside the vehicle fired shots, striking Hill in the buttocks and abdomen, police said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:34 p.m.
