A 17-year-old boy has been charged with fatally shooting a 16-year-old boy Friday morning in the Bridgeport neighborhood on the South Side.

Christian Bandmer was shot in the chest about 11:35 a.m. in the 3500 block of South Parnell, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Bandmer, who lived in the 900 block of West 36th Street, was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:59 a.m., authorities said. An autopsy Saturday ruled his death a homicide.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested and charged with first-degree murder for the shooting, according to police, who withheld his name because he is a minor. Court information was not immediately available.
