Deangelo Glover, 30, is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly shooting 32-year-old Tyrone William Wright on Jan. 19 on the 3800 block of Hayes Street, NE. 

According to court documents, multiple expended .40 caliber and 9mm cartridge casings were found at the scene. The medical examiner reported that the victim received 17 gunshot wounds, six to the back of the head.
