(CHICAGO) Two brothers were ordered held without bond Saturday for allegedly gunning down a 17-year-old boy outside a high school basketball game at Chicago State University.
Michael McNabb, 32, of the 11500 block of South Racine, and Stephen Gilbert, 29, of the 12400 block of South Harding in Alsip, have both been charged with first degree murder in the shooting death of Tyrone Lawson II.
The men are brothers, their father said after their bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse Saturday.
Lawson, a Morgan Park High School student, was killed Wednesday night near a parking lot on the college campus after the basketball game at 95th Street and King Drive, officials said.
McNabb was apparently at the game to pick up his 3-year-old daughter, who was at the match between Morgan Park and Simeon Career Academy, a family friend said.
Before the shooting, a fight broke out at the end of the game between a couple of players from both teams, and Chicago Public Schools security quickly broke it up.
The weapon was recovered.
Pam Wright, Lawson’s mother, had said she thought her son would be safe at the game.
The school’s gym was considered neutral ground for warring gangs, she said.
