Bond was set at $500,000 today for a West Side man accused in the shooting death of a 22-year-old man during a drug-related robbery last week.
Donzelle Long, 22, is charged with armed robbery and first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Brandon Ulmer on Thursday.
Prosecutors said Long and an indentified accomplice had set up a deal with Ulmer to sell him a pound of marijuana for $5,400. They met Thursday evening in Long's car outside the victim's home in the 7200 block of West 58th Street in Summit.
After Ulmer handed over the cash, Long's accomplice pulled a gun and ordered him out of the vehicle, shooting him once in the buttocks as he was getting out of the car, prosecutors said.
Ulmer was pronounced dead at Loyola University Medical Center at about 7:10 p.m. Thursday, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
The accomplice, who was not in custody as of Monday, later bragged about the shooting in a text message to a witness, according to prosecutors.
Long, of the 3800 block of West Lexington Street in Chicago, has no criminal history, according to court records.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
