MADISON — Twin brothers were charged Wednesday in a shooting that left a 15-year-old boy dead and two other people injured.
Torion and Corion Mosley, both 21, were charged in St. Clair County with first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and one count of unlawful possession of weapons in the shooting Monday night in the 1500 block of Fifth Street in Madison.
Bond for the brothers was set at $1 million each.
Lt. Nick Novacich of the Granite City Police Department, who headed the Major Case Squad investigation, said the twins and their victims had been involved in a neighborhood feud.
The people involved were “not strangers to each other. Based on statements we have, it sounds like there was some stuff building up in the neighborhood,” Novacich said.
Police in Madison were called to the shooting about 7:30 p.m. Monday, where they found Omarian D. Coleman, 15, of Granite City, with gunshot wounds that killed him. A 16-year-old boy and a man, 21, survived their wounds. Court documents said one was shot in the stomach and the other in the leg with a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun.
Torion Mosley got into a lengthy standoff with police that night before being arrested. His brother was taken into custody later.
Both Mosley brothers have criminal records. Corion Mosley was convicted of a 2015 armed robbery and sentenced to six years in prison. He went to prison in January 2016 but was paroled in December 2017, the Illinois Department of Corrections said.
Torion Mosley was arrested in 2017 by Pontoon Beach police for marijuana possession. He was charged with domestic assault in February in Madison County. He was released on his own recognizance on June 7, according to court records.
He also has misdemeanor charges for disorderly conduct and assault pending against him from a June 11 incident in St. Clair County, according to court records.
