Indeed they were. William Grant, 26, and Royale Newell, 27, were arrested the same day as the shooting. According to a news release from the CPD, Newell has been charged with one count of Aggravated Battery with a Firearm and Grant has been charged with the same, as well as an additional charge having to do with an outstanding warrant.
The CPD gives Newell's address as the 1000 block of Hollywood, although his Facebook page puts his allegiances at Winona & Winthrop (along with photos of him holding his fingers in painful-looking arthritic postures). Grant's address is given as the 4100 block of Kenmore. The Trib says both of them have extensive felonies on their records dating back to 2007, which is right about the time they became adults in the eyes of the law. Real go-getters, these two.
Both appeared in bond court over the weekend. Shaw's bond was set at $950,000 and Newell's at $75,000, which gives a good indication as to which one is thought to have done the actual shooting. They both are scheduled to appear in Branch 42 of the Cook County Court this week, which is for "Felony Preliminary Hearings." At the moment, they are guests of the county at 26th & Cal.
Nice work by the 20th District Police in making the arrests the same day as the shooting occurred.
