A 26-year-old Chicago man has been charged in the senseless killing of a Columbia College student, CBS Chicago reports.
Jerome Brown is accused of gunning down 19-year-old Kevin Ambrose in a May 7 drive-by shooting.
Ambrose, a Theatre major, was to meet with his friend Michael Dye before his untimely death.
Dye witnessed Ambrose running near the CTA Green Line stop near 47th and South Prairie, according to ABC 7.
“I step on the platform, and I see him running. I didn’t know it was him at first, but he’s running. And next thing you know, I hear three or four shots,” Dye told ABC 7.
Ambrose’s mother Ebony Ambose is distraught over her son’s death. She recalled her son being “happy” with his life.
“He was happy. He wanted people to be happy. He was excited about his future and he made plans and he was executing those plans,” she told NBC Chicago.
Brown is charged with first-degree murder and is being held in jail without bond.
