MARKHAM, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man and 16-year-old boy have been charged with the fatally shooting a man outside a south suburban sports bar early Saturday.

Matthew Smith, 16, of Chicago, was charged as an adult with first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to a statement from Harvey spokeswoman Sandra Alvarado.

Arsenio Williams, 24, of Chicago, was charged with aggravated fleeing and eluding, in addition to aiding and concealing a homicide, Alvarado said.

On Monday, Smith was ordered held on $4 million bond and Williams on $2.5 million, Cook County State's Attorney's office spokesman Andy Conklin said.

Smith is accused of shooting Kevin Guice, 29, in the head after an argument at the Press Box Club, 15430 Dixie Highway in Harvey at about 12:45 a.m. Saturday, authorities said.

Guice, of the 14000 block of South Tracy in Riverdale, was pronounced dead at 1:40 a.m. at Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. An autopsy Saturday found Guice suffered a gunshot to the head and his death was ruled a homicide.

Alvarado said another person was injured and taken to Ingalls Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released.

Samora Hicks, who identified herself as Guice's sister, said Guice was defending himself from an attacker who yelled that he would shoot everyone after an argument between multiple groups in the club. Hicks said at least six shots were fired before her brother was hit.

Smith and Williams are expected back in court Aug. 28.
