A South Side man was denied bail and his alleged accomplice in a fatal drive-by shooting last month was ordered held in lieu of $1 million bond at Cook County Bond Court Sunday.
Terrence Snowden, 24, of the 8700 block of Euclid Avenue, and Phillip Boyd, 23, of the 7700 block of South Bennett Avenue, each face a murder charge in connection to the July 23 killing of Tyrone Hart, according to police sources and court records. Snowden was additionally charged with having a firearm without a valid FOID card and possession of cannabis, police said.
At about 7:40 p.m. July 23, Snowden, Boyd and an unidentified co-offender got word that Hart was hanging out on the 8000 block of South Chappel Avenue in the South Chicago neighborhood, according to police and Assistant State's Attorney Latoya Croswell.
Boyd allegedly provided Snowden with a handgun when they caught word of Hart's location, Croswell said.
Snowden shot Hart from a moving vehicle, striking him in the back, and their vehicle sped off, according to Croswell and court records.
Hart, of the 8100 block of South Chappel Avenue, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:24 p.m., according to the medical examiner's office. An autopsy performed July 24 determined Hart died of a gunshot wound to the back and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner's office.
Police later found the gun, a loaded Ruger nine-millimeter pistol with an extended clip, at Snowden's residence, according to court records.
