BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - An East St. Louis man is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused of a shooting death in nearby Washington Park.

Prosecutors in St. Clair County have charged 29-year-old Eric Hill with first-degree murder.

Authorities allege he repeatedly shot 20-year-old Marcus Harris of Washington Park early Sunday.

Online court records do not show whether Hill has an attorney. He does not have a listed home telephone number.

Illinois State Police assisted in the investigation.
