CHICAGO — A man was charged Thursday in connection to a deadly shooting in a CTA pedestrian tunnel in the Loop.

Torrez Cathery, 23,  was charged with one count of first-degree murder.

He was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals and Chicago police in west suburban Oak Park Thursday.

Interim police superintendent Charlie Beck said the killing was an execution and captured in graphic detail by CTA cameras.

Police said Cathery resisted arrest and had to be tazed by police.

Police said he has a record with 22 prior arrests, the most recent just last month.

A 24-year-old man was shot and killed and two others, a man and a woman, were wounded. Both are still in the hospital. The man is in grave condition.

They also say two babies were in the group. They were unharmed.

Police said it was a personal dispute that began with a knife attack in October.
