Three Charged In 2014 West Side Shooting That Left Teen Dead, 6 Injured

CHICAGO (STMW) -- Three men were charged in a July 2014 shooting in the East Garfield Park neighborhood that left a 13-year-old boy dead and six other people wounded.

Anthony Harris, Anthony Lyons and Joshua Almore, all 23, each face one count of first-degree murder and six counts of attempted first-degree murder in connection with a shooting on July 25 2014 in the 700 block of South California, police said.

About 6 p.m., 13-year-old Samuel Walker was standing outside with six other people — three of whom were also teen boys — when they were shot, police said at the time. Walker, who lived nearby in the 3000 block of West Flournoy, was shot in the head and pronounced dead 20 minutes later, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the right foot and three 14-year-old boys were each shot in the left leg, police said. A 21-year-old man was shot in the right leg and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition, police said.

A 25-year-old man suffered a graze wound to the abdomen and was treated at the scene, police said.

Harris, of the 1600 block of South Komensky, Lyons, of the 1200 block of South Harding, and Almore, of the 6800 block of South Ridgeland, are scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday.
