The Sun-Times is reporting this afternoon that three teens have been charged with first-degree murder for the beating death of 16-year-old Derrion Albert during a brawl last week.
Silvanus Shannon, 19; Eric Carson, 16; and Eugene Riley, 18, all of Chicago, are charged with one count each of first-degree murder, according to Cook County State's Attorney's office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton. Carson is being charged as an adult, and all three are scheduled for a bond hearing at noon.
Over the weekend, FOX 32 obtained video of the brawl shot by a witness on a cell phone. The video had been shared with authorities in the hopes of tracking down suspects in Albert's death and it seems it has paid off.
