CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man accused of shooting a 16-year-old in the head has been charged with first-degree murder.

A police statement says 21-year-old Antwan Elliott has been charged with first-degree murder, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and possession of firearm without a valid FOID card.

He was to appear in bond court Tuesday. It was not immediately clear if he already had an attorney who could comment on the case.

Police say the victim, Giovanni Matos, was walking with friends in the Portage Park neighborhood on March 15 when a car pulled up and an argument ensued.

According to police, Elliott got out of the car and opened fire. Matos was hit and died at a hospital. His friends ran and were not injured.
