No bail for man charged in January murder of West Pullman store worker – NBC Chicago

Bail was denied on Sunday for a man accused of fatally shooting a store worker in January in West Pullman in the far south.

Sayviean Kimp, 19, faces a first-degree murder charge for the Jan. 29 attack in the 11600 block of South Halsted Street, Chicago police said.

Surivellience video captured Kimp shooting 24-year-old Ahmed Hassan Abdel Madany inside the store, ultimately causing his death, prosecutors say. Mandany’s fingerprints were also found at the scene, prosecutors said.

In addition to the murder case, Kimp faces armed robbery charges for three separate incidents.

In a March 2 case, Kimp and an accomplice robbed a T-Mobile store, 1515 E. 87th St., taking $6,000 in cash and $18,000 in phones and accessories. Kimp allegedly placed a gun to an employee’s head and demanded that everyone in the store go to the back office.

Kimp allegedly wore the same clothes and shoes during the Jan. 29 robbery and fatal attack, prosecutors said.

In November 2021, Kimp arranged to buy an iPad, then robbed the seller. A month earlier, Kimp allegedly listed his iPhone for sale and then robbed the man who met him to buy the phone.

Kimp was sentenced to $25,000 bond for each armed robbery case.

Kimp was the victim of a car accident that caused brain damage, according to his lawyer. He suffers from memory loss and mood swings.
