No bail for man charged in fatal shooting outside Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn
The shooting appeared to be related to a double homicide in Gresham less than two hours earlier, according to Oak Lawn police.
Bail was denied Sunday for a Chicago man accused of fatally shooting a 28-year-old man a day earlier outside Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
Witnesses identified Marques Rose, 38, as the gunman who fired at Brandon McGee about 2 a.m. as McGee was standing with a group of people outside the hospital’s emergency room in the 9400 block of South Kilbourn Avenue, Oak Lawn police said.
The group gathered outside the hospital after two people were shot two hours earlier during a car enthusiast gathering in Gresham, prosecutors said.
According to prosecutors, Rose and McGee got into an argument that turned into a physical altercation. McGee allegedly shoved Rose to the ground before they both walked away from the group.
Rose then returned and pulled out a gun, firing in McGee’s direction, prosecutors said.
McGee was was shot in the left eye and taken inside the hospital for treatment but died 12 hours later, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
Responding officers saw Rose run from the scene and placed him in custody, according to police. A loaded revolver was recovered.
Rose, of Gresham, faces a count of first-degree murder and was held mandatory no bail. He is expected to appear in court Monday after he was found in violation of a previous bail bond.
