Two charged for the shooting of teen

Posted on in Criminal Defense

KHarryCrim2ChargedA teen-aged boy was shot on January 16 outside a high school basketball game at Chicago State University. Two men face charges and no bail for the shooting. The Chicago Tribune reported a story on the shooting.

According to authorities, Michael McNabb, 32, and 29-year-old Stephen Gilbert were both charged with murder in the killing of the 17-year-old victim, Tyrone Lawson.

Lawson was shot around 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday night after Morgan Park had lost to Simeon High School. The shooting took place just outside the CSU gymnasium near 95th Street and King Drive.  Lawson was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Lawson's cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds in a homicide, the Cook County medical examiner's office declared a day after the incident. Lawson's 41-year-old aunt, Kurtistein Bailey, told the media that Lawson was shot twice in the back when he was running away.

Chicago police said they got a quick message from University Police to watch for a Jeep, and McNabb and Gilbert were taken into custody when the Jeep was pulled over and a gun was found inside the vehicle.

There had been an argument in a handshake line after the game, but it is unclear if these two incidents were connected.
