CHICAGO (STMW) – A man was charged with misdemeanor counts of battery after he allegedly shot his brother-in-law on the West Side when the two got into an altercation late Christmas Eve.

Around 11:30 p.m., Robert M. Robinson was arguing with his 50-year-old brother-in-law inside a home in the 1300 block of South Throop Avenue when Robinson pulled out a gun and shot the other man in the shoulder, police said.

The 50-year-old was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County in “stable” condition, police said.

Robinson, 36, of Pittsburgh, Penn., had a laceration on his head and was taken to Stroger for treatment before police took him into custody for questioning.

He was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor counts of battery and domestic battery, police said.

He is scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday.
