19-year-old charged in shooting that killed Schlagle High School student

Posted: Updated:

A 19-year-old faces charges of second-degree murder and armed criminal action in connection to the shooting death of a 16-year-old Schlagle High School student.

The Jackson County Prosecutor filed charges against Christopher Sherman on Monday.

Jalisa Reed was killed March 16 in a shooting near East 75th Street and Monroe Avenue. The shooting happened after an argument, when a man returned to the scene with a gun and opened fire, killing the teen and wounding another woman.

Reed's sister told police they had gone to their aunt's home and, while walking back to their car, Sherman and four others drove by in a white Yukon. Court documents said one of the people in the Yukon was dating one of the girls and a fight between them had occurred earlier in the evening at Sherman's home. The driver of the Yukon stopped the car, and Reed's sister told police they all began arguing.

Court documents said during the arguing Sherman got out of the Yukon, armed with a handgun and began firing shots.

Sherman told police one of the girls hit his cousin and, during the argument, he heard one of the girls say, "here comes my brothers with heat." He said he only fired shots because he was being shot at by two other men.

Sherman is currently not in custody - his bond has been set at 10 percent of $250,000.
