Bail was denied for two Chicago men charged in the murder of a Cicero man in the western suburb.

David Aguirre-Gonzalez is accused of firing a weapon from a vehicle on July 13 and killing Richard Dunlap after the two were arguing, Cicero spokesman Ray Hanania said. He faces one count of first-degree murder.

Nicolas Aguirre, 19, who was a passenger, is charged with three counts aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, according to Hanania and county records. Both are members of a street gang in Chicago, Hanania said.

The shooting stemmed from an argument between two groups in the 2200 block of Central Avenue in Cicero, Hanania said.

Dunlap and another person were walking on a sidewalk about 9:30 p.m. when Aguirre, Aguirre-Gonzalez and two others pulled up in a black Hummer at a traffic light, authorities said.

The two groups “exchanged words” and began arguing, and then someone from the sidewalk threw a bottle at the Hummer and hit the hood, Hanania said. One of the passengers pulled out a weapon and fired one shot, striking 33-year-old Dunlap. The Hummer drove off.

Dunlap was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced dead at 9:54 p.m., the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy found he died of a gunshot wound that entered his arm and then his chest. His death was ruled a homicide.

Police responding to the shooting pulled over the Hummer in the 5100 block of Cermak Road and arrested the men, Hanania said. The two other passengers in the vehicle were not charged.

Both men were ordered held in Cook County Jail without bail, Hanania said.
