Authorities charged Cameron Reed, 25, with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. 

Police say Reed and the victim, ONeal Stafford, 25, reportedly became involved in a heated argument at the intersection of Winkler and Chambers around 3 a.m. on Sunday. The argument escalated and Reed allegedly opened fire.
