A second man has been charged in connection with last November’s shooting death of a 25-year-old Homewood man shot multiple times while sitting in his car, according to police and court records.

Homewood police said 22-year-old Ryan Carter, of the 1000 block of Markham Park Drive in Flossmoor, was arrested July 14 and charged with one count of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Darion Duncan.

A warrant for Carter’s arrest, carrying the charge of first-degree murder and that he should be held without bail, was issued April 11 and he is next due to appear in court Aug. 9, according to court records.

Cook County sheriff records do not show him being held pending his next court date.

Carter joins Nicholas Matthews, 22, of the 15600 block of Madison Avenue in Dolton, in facing charges in the Nov. 27, 2022, shooting.
