An Englewood man was ordered held without bail Sunday in connection with a fatal shooting there in 2011.

Antoine Reynolds, 28, of the 5600 block of South Shields, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Devonta Childress, records show.

Prosecutors said Reynolds, who was a passenger in a gold Cadillac, fired an assault rifle toward a crowd on July 6, 2011, in the 6100 block of South Normal. The driver allegedly fired a handgun, prosecutors said.

A 15-year-old was also shot three times in the left leg, prosecutors said.

Multiple eyewitnesses identified Reynolds as the man who fired the assault rifle, according to court records.
