Anthony is accused of fatally shooting Jaleen Armstrong about 12:25 p.m. April 6 in the 8100 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue, authorities said. Two people approached Armstrong and shot him in the groin.

Armstrong, of the 8000 block of South Ingleside Avenue, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and was dead on arrival, according to the medical examiner’s office.
