Man, 18, charged with 2 fatal shootings in Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) — An 18-year-old Chicago man is facing two murder charges for last month's shooting death of a woman and her 5-year-old son.
Chicago Police say Friday that Antonio Lewis is facing two counts of first-degree murder and a single count of attempted first-degree murder for the June 28 shooting that killed 31-year-old Chevonne Brown and 5-year-old Sterling Sims.
Authorities say Lewis also tried to shoot Brown's 11-year-old son, but his gun malfunctioned.
The Chicago Sun-Times says Lewis was shot later that same day in a separate incident. Police say he remains in the hospital.
It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
Because he's in the hospital, Lewis won't appear in bond court.
