Bond denied for man, 17, in murder of Pilsen boy

Bond has been denied for 17-year-old Javier Garza.

He is charged with the murder of a 14-year-old boy who was killed Sunday in the heart of the Pilsen neighborhood.

Damien Garza is in jail on $1 million bond.

He is accused of being the getaway driver.

Prosecutors say Javier Garza opened fire on a group of teenagers in rival gang territory near 22nd and Leavitt to avenge his father’s death 12 years ago.

His mother tells the Tribune that doesn’t make sense.

Garza’s father was killed in a different neighborhood.
