A 22-year-old West Englewood man was charged with murder, as well as four counts of attempted murder, on Dec. 13 while he was in custody of the Cook County Department of Corrections on unrelated charges.

Antonio Baldwin (also known as Angelo T. Baldwin), of the 6800 block of South Honore, allegedly “participated” in the Thursday, June 10 shooting death of a 20-year-old man who was standing next to a vehicle in the 6500 block of South Claremont, according to a Chicago Police Department statement.

In that crime, Darrion Stokes was shot in the chest. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Witnesses told police that the shooter fired from a vehicle that pulled alongside Stokes’ vehicle.

Police added that additional gunfire struck the vehicle, which was occupied by a 17-year-old girl who sustained a graze wound to the finger, as well as a 26-year-old woman, a 6-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl.

Baldwin is currently held with bond. He has three court dates coming up (January 3 and 19, and February 1) on charges from three different incidents.

According to public records, Baldwin has been arrested 11 times by CPD since 2017 on such charges as gambling, obstructing identification, possession of a controlled substance, theft, retail theft, criminal trespass to a residence, aggravated assault, battery and domestic battery.
