A south suburban Flossmoor man has been charged for allegedly fatally shooting two teens in a South Chicago apartment Saturday morning.

Justin Hamilton, 23, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, police said.

Hamilton is accused of killing 16-year-old Jordan Means and 18-year-old Anthony Bankhead.

Police found Bankhead and Means both shot to death in the basement of a building in the 8200 block of South Houston Avenue shortly after 10:30 a.m.

Both died of gunshot wounds to the head, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Hamilton is scheduled to appear in bond court Tuesday.

On Saturday, Means’ mother, Camille Cochran, said that the shooter and her son had exchanged words on Facebook.

“An argument led to this, that’s crazy,” said Cochran, 42. “Now, I don’t have my son no more.”

According to the medical examiner’s office, Bankhead lived in the home he was killed in, and Means lived less than two blocks away.
