Man, 2 juveniles charged with South Loop shooting that left 1 dead, 1 injured last month

A 19-year-old man, a 15-year-old boy, and a 16-year-old boy are charged with murder and other felonies for participating in a double shooting that killed one high school student and injured another in the South Loop last month, Chicago police said.

Jordan Parks and the unidentified juveniles were arrested Tuesday.


Chicago police said the three are responsible for opening fire on two 18-year-olds who were sitting in a Jeep in the 1900 block of South State around 3:30 p.m. on April 27.

The gunfire killed Cameron Rayford, and the other man received a graze wound to his hand.

Shortly after the shooting, Chicago police found a stolen Kia used by the gunmen abandoned near Cermak Road and State Street.

More details about how police identified Parks and the juveniles will be revealed during bond hearings on Thursday.

CWBChicago will publish a complete report after the bail hearing.
