A Chicago teenager is being held on $2 million bond after being accused in last month's shooting death of a taxi cab driver.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Cook County prosecutors have charged 17-year-old Clint Massey with first-degree murder. His bond was set Sunday.

Authorities allege that 28-year-old Javan Boyd was sitting in his taxi cab waiting for a fare on Feb. 22 when he was shot seven times. He later died at a hospital.

Massey was arrested Friday.

Boyd's relatives say he moved to Chicago in 1991 from New Orleans and lost his mother, two sisters and a brother in a 1994 fire.

It wasn't immediately clear Sunday if Massey had an attorney.
