A Chicago man is facing murder charges in the fatal shooting of a woman and the wounding of another in Burnside on the South Side last year.

Nathaniel Brown was arrested Monday and charged with killing Kyra Gray, 35, and shooting a 31-year-old woman Aug. 28 in the 800 block of East 88th Place, Chicago police said.

Gray and the other woman were on the sidewalk when they were shot. Gray was struck in the torso and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, police said. The other woman was shot in the thigh and transported in fair condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Brown, 21, was charged with one count each of first-degree muder, aggravated battery and criminal damage of property, according to police said.

He was expected to appear in bond court Tuesday.
