MARKHAM -- Bond was set at $3 million Friday for a Chicago man charged in a shootout that left two people dead, including one shot by police, and two others wounded April 21 at a Calumet City nightclub.
Antonio Goston, 26, of Chicago, was arrested May 23 in Texas on a warrant and brought back to Illinois, where he was charged with first-degree murder, according to Calumet City police.
On Friday, Cook County Judge Douglas Simpson ordered Goston held on $3 million bond during a hearing at the Markham Courthouse, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokesman Andy Conklin said. He will next appear in court July 13.
Goston is accused of shooting two people early April 21 in the parking lot of the What’s Up nightclub in the 700 block of Torrence Avenue in Calumet City, police Chief Dan Zorzi said.
Responding officers initially found two apparent gunshot victims, he said. “While our officers were on the scene there were more shots.” Officers exchanged gunfire with a man who was firing “and that person was shot.”
No officers were injured in the incident.
A total of four people were wounded, two of them -- including the one shot by police -- died, Zorzi said.
The dead men were identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office as Willie White, in his 20s, and Archer Chambers, 20.
A man and a woman wounded in the shooting were also hospitalized, Zorzi said.
