Andrew Anania, 18, and two other males, both 15, are each charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 16-year-old Ramon Breceda, according to a statement from Chicago Police. The names of the teens were not released because they are juveniles.

Breceda and two others were in the 2400 block of South Washtenaw about 11:30 p.m. Friday when two males walked up and opened fire, authorities said at the time.

Breceda, of the 2700 block of West 23rd Street, was shot in the chest and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:17 a.m. Saturday, according to police the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the buttocks and an 18-year-old man was shot in the arm, police said. Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where their conditions were stable.

Police said all three victims are documented gang members.

Anania, of the 2400 block of South Troy, is scheduled to appear in bond court Sunday, police said. Court information for the teens was not immediately available.
