A south suburban Flossmoor man has been charged in the fatal shooting of two teens Saturday morning on the South Side.

Justin Hamilton, 23, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He’s accused of killing 16-year-old Jordan Means and 18-year-old Anthony Bankhead, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

Police found Bankhead and Means shot to death in the basement of a building in the 8200 block of Houston Avenue shortly after 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Both died of gunshot wounds to the head, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Hamilton is scheduled to appear in bond court Tuesday.

On Saturday, Means’ mother, Camille Cochran, told the Chicago Sun-Times that the shooter and her son had exchanged words on Facebook.

“An argument led to this, that’s crazy,” said Cochran, 42. “Now, I don’t have my son no more.”

Chicago Police did not confirm the details provided by Cochran.

According to the medical examiner’s office, Bankhead lived in the home he was killed in, and Means lived less than two blocks away.
