CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A south suburban Flossmoor man has been charged in connection with the shooting death of two teens on the South Side Saturday morning.

Justin Hamilton, 23, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder for allegedly shooting and killing 16-year-old Jordan Means and 18-year-old Anthony Bankhead, according to a statement from police.

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. A judge ordered that he be held without bond.

Saturday, Means’ mother, Camille Cochran, told the Sun-Times 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.”

Police did not confirm the details provided by Cochran.

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