A 20-year-old Kenwood man is charged with murder in connection to a Friday shooting that killed a man and wounded two others in Grand Crossing on the South Side.

Daevon Brownlee allegedly opened fire on three people while they stood on a sidewalk at 3:25 a.m. in the 900 block of East 79th Street, according to Chicago police.

Anthony Maggette, 53, was shot multiple times and later died at a hospital, officials said. He lived in Gresham.

The shooting also wounded a 45-year-old woman shot in her ankle, and a 43-year-old man shot in his abdomen, police said.

Brownlee was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, three counts of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated battery with a firearm, police said.

He was ordered held without bail at a Sunday court appearance, according to county records. Brownlee is due in court again Monday.
