Two men were charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a teenage boy Wednesday outside Chicago State University after a high school basketball game.

Police charged both Michael McNabb, 32, of the 11500 block of South Racine and Stephen Gilbert, 29, of the 12400 of South Harding in Alsip with first degree murder, according to police News Affairs.

The shooting happened Wednesday night near a parking lot outside the school's gym.

It started with a brawl inside the gym just after a basketball game between Chicago Public Schools Simeon and Morgan Park. Players were going through the handshake line when the brawl began and some of the players ran into the middle of the fight.

Security eventually broke it up, directing all players to stay in their locker rooms, but a short time later guns shots were fired outside the gym.

Police said a man was shot in the back and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious condition. He later died.

The victim was initially described as a 20-year-old man, but the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office identified him as 17-year-old Tyrone Lawson.

This isn't the first time Simeon and Morgan Park have brawled during a game. The last time was September at a football game.

McNabb and Gilbert are scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 19, police said.
