CHICAGO (WLS) -- Murder charges were filed nearly seven years after a man allegedly opened fire on a barbecue party in Bronzeville.

Alfred Mitchell Junior, 28, was killed in the August 2017 shooting at 37th and Michigan on the city's South Side.

At least six other people were shot while standing on the sidewalk just after 10:30 p.m. when a group of males walked up and fired shots from the corner of the block, police said.
