Chicago police say they have charged a 17-year-old in the shooting death last month of a White Sox vendor.

Nicholas Ramirez was killed during the early morning hours of April 19. Chicago police said Tuesday that Ramirez was in a vehicle stopped at a light in the city's West Town neighborhood when it was rammed by another vehicle. A passenger in that vehicle got out and shot the 19-year-old Ramirez.

Ramirez attempted to drive away after being shot but lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a concrete median, where authorities found him dead.

Police say the occupants of the two vehicles were earlier involved in chase along a West Side street.

The teen charged wasn't identified by police because of his age.
