Official: Suspect admits role in beating death of Chicago teen

One of the suspects accused of killing an honor student in a beating captured on tape in Chicago has admitted to jumping on the victim’s head after he was already lying on the ground, said a spokeswoman for the Cook County State’s Attorney.

In the videotaped confession, 19-year-old Silvanus Shannon also said that the victim, Derrion Albert, never struck him, said the spokeswoman, Tandra Simonton.

Three teens arrested in Albert’s death — Silvanus Shannon, 19; Eric Carson, 16; and Eugene Riley, 18 — were seen on the videotape attacking Albert, and were charged with first degree murder and held without bail, Simonton said. Monday night authorities said they charged a fourth suspect, 17-year-old Eugene Bailey, with murder.
