CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Bond was set Saturday at $1 million for a 24-year-old man charged with the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy at a CHA complex on the Far South Side two weeks ago.

The shooting happened about 2:50 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, in the 10500 block of South Oglesby Avenue.

According to court records, Joseph Brewer suffered eight gunshot wounds to his legs and back in the attack.

Court records say that Aries Thayre Sanders, of the 6400 block of South Stony Island, and another offender arrived a short time before the shooting at the Trumball Park CHA complex. Sanders was carrying a gun case as he and the other offender waked up a set of stairs in the complex. Surveillance video caught the other man minutes later carrying a large gun in his hand, partially covered by a shirt, as the two followed Brewer through the complex. The video showed the other offender firing several times at Brewer, after which the two left the scene.

Brewer was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.

The two left in the car they arrived in, though once they were in the car, Chicago police officers arrived on the scene and removed the two from the car, and recovered a gun case containing a high-capacity clip with 21 live 9mm rounds in the trunk, according to court records. Sanders, 24, a US Postal Service employee, according to court records, was arrested at his workplace on Friday.

At a bond hearing Saturday at 26th and California, bond was set at $1 million for Sanders.
