A 17-year-old boy was charged with fatally shooting another teenager in September in Austin on the West Side.
The boy, who is unnamed because he’s charged as a juvenile, faces a count of first-degree murder in the Sept. 26, 2020, shooting of Avion Aldridge, Chicago police said.
Aldridge, 17, was shot in an alley after he was approached by two gunmen at 11:15 a.m. in the 200 block of North Leamington Avenue, police said. He died on the scene from a gunshot to his upper torso.
The 17-year-old was arrested Tuesday after being identified as a shooter in that murder, police said. He was expected in juvenile court Wednesday.
