Bail was denied Monday for a gunman accused of killing one man and wounding another in Lawndale last week after two cars began cutting each other off and bumped into each other.
Richard Savado, 18, grabbed a gun from the fanny pack of a driver after their car was rear-ended Friday evening near California Avenue and Roosevelt Road, a Cook County prosecutor said in court Monday.
Savado walked to the other car, stretched out his arms and fired six shots, fatally striking the driver, Nicholas Kochenburg, 42, and wounding the front seat passenger, 41, prosecutors said.
An Illinois State Police trooper driving by witnessed the shooting and arrested Savado, prosecutors said.

Kochenburg and his passenger had recently met each other and were headed to a party the evening they were shot, prosecutors said.
A judge ordered Savado held without bail on counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder and unauthorized use of a weapon.
