A second teenager is charged with his friend’s murder, even though he didn’t fire the fatal shot.
Three teens tried to rob an off-duty sheriff’s sergeant at gunpoint Monday, near 103rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue.
But the officer pulled his own gun and shot and killed 16-year-old Deonta Mackey, whose friends ran off.
One of them, 17-year-old Devante Graham, surrendered to police on Feb. 12. He’s charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. Bail for Graham was set at $1 million.
The other teen, a 15-year-old, turned himself in late Friday and was also charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. He is due in bond court Sunday.
