CHICAGO (WLS) — A 17-year-old arrested over the weekend was charged as adult, not a juvenile, on Monday at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse.

This charges came after a fatal shooting in Millennium Park over the weekend.

“They came to the area as part of a larger group gathering that had been advertised on social media,” said Cook County, Asst. State’s Attorney James Murphy.

Marion Richardson appeared before a judge for bond court from a juvenile detention facility via video conference. Richardson was given a $250,000 bond for the murder of 16-year-old Seandell Holliday.

The prosecutor told the Judge the two teenagers exchanged words. Then, Holliday jumped on Richardson’s back.

“The victim then punched the defendant in the head. At the same time, another male approached the defendant and appeared to punch at the defendant’s head. Defendant Richardson then pulled out a handgun and shot the victim once in the chest,” Murphy said.

Holliday died at the park. Holliday was remembered at a vigil in Roseland on Sunday. Those who knew him recalled a thoughtful young man concerned about the violence in Chicago and concerned about surviving until his 21st birthday.

Holliday participated in the Champs Male Mentoring Program.

WATCH: What we know about the alleged shooter

As for Richardson, his attorney said he was getting ready to start a new job this week. If his family can post the $250,000 bail, he would be on electronic monitoring.

According to a police report obtained by the ABC7 I-Team, Richardson told police it was his first ever arrest. Investigators said he used a 380-caliber pistol with an extended eight round magazine. They are guns that are smaller and considered easier to hide.

Detectives said Richardson was carrying a Glock 42 model of that pistol Saturday night, also equipped with a laser targeting attachment. That laser accessory resulted in one of the three charges the teenager now faces, including second degree murder.

Authorities also claimed Richardson had eight hollow point bullets. Those are rounds that expand on impact and are considered by some to be more lethal and dangerous.

“They came to the area as part of a larger group gathering that had been advertised on social media,” Murphy said.

And even though authorities say Richardson came to Bean armed with an extended magazine, fully loaded, laser equipped Glock pistol, according to the police report, the accused shooter “states it’s his first arrest.”

Richardson’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 3.
