Flossmoor Man Held in Connection with Double Homicide

The mother of a teen found shot to death Saturday claims her son was killed after a Facebook chat dispute over a phone cord, NBC reports. 

Justin Hamilton, 23, of Flossmoor, is being held without bail Tuesday in connection with the shooting deaths of Jordan Means, 16, and Anthony Bankhead, 18,  NBC reports.  Means and Bankhead were found dead in an apartment in the 8200 block of South Houston Avenue. 

Hamilton was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, according to the report. 

Means' mother Camille Cochran told reporters that the situation started online, and "an argument led to this, that’s crazy. .... Now, I don’t have my son no more."

Prosecutors allege Hamilton is a member of the Latin Kings street gang.
