Alphonso Joyner, 23, appeared in court Thursday after he allegedly fired 20 times at Woom Sing Tse as he walked past John C. Haines Elementary School. The school entered a lockdown after the first shots were fired.
Police charged Joyner with first-degree murder.
Judge Maryam Ahmad cited “overwhelming” evidence as she denied any bail for Joyner, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Ahmad referred to the shooting as an “execution.”
Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy said his team could not provide a motive for the shooting, only offering that “sometimes individuals just do evil things.”
