A 19-year-old man and two 16-year-old boys were charged today in connection with a fatal shooting and a home invasion at a party late Friday night on the South Side.
The shooting happened about 11 p.m. Friday outside a party in the 8400 block of South Constance Avenue in the Stony Island Park neighborhood, police said.
Dionte Maxwell, 18, of the 8400 block of South Marshfield Avenue, was shot and pronounced dead at 11:53 p.m. at Jackson Park Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Police said Maxwell had been involved in a verbal dispute that turned physical. Apparently he was at a family party when uninvited guest arrived and Maxwell got in a dispute with them. The person he was arguing with pulled out a gun and shot Maxwell in the chest, then fled the scene, police said.
Charles Southern, 19, of the 11000 block of South Vernon Avenue along with two 16-old-boys have been charged with first-degree murder, home invasion, attempted home invasion and mob action. They are expected to appear in bond court on Monday. They have been charged as adults.
