Man charged in 2011 slaying outside South Side gas station

A Chicago man was arrested earlier this week in the fatal shooting of a teenager last year who he argued with outside a Woodlawn neighborhood gas station.
The break in the long-dormant case came when a witness finally identified Ryan Thornton, 26, as the person who shot Victor Golden, 19.
Thornton, of the 6200 block of South Langley Avenue, was ordered held in lieu of a $800,000 bond.
On Feb. 23, 2011, Golden was standing with several friends outside a gas station on the 800 block of East 63rd Street when Thornton and another person approached the group at around 4:20 p.m., asking if they had problems with Thornton's cousin.

Thornton then fired a 9mm handgun, striking Golden in the lower left back.
Golden, of the 7600 block of South Dante Avenue, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. A 9mm bullet was removed from his body at the Cook County Medical Examiner's office and a 9mm casing was found at the scene.
In June of this year, someone came forward and identified Thornton in a lineup as the shooter. A separate witness, who ducked into the gas station for cover, told police Thornton reached into his waistband right before the shooting.
Thornton was arrested on Oct. 26 and charged with first-degree murder. He currently is serving a two-year probation in a drug case from earlier this year, for which he was sentenced Sept. 13
