CHICAGO (STMW) — Two men charged in connection with a shooting Monday night in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side have been ordered held on $250,000 bond each.
Officers caught the men allegedly speeding away after shooting a 38-year-old man inside his home in the 4000 block of West 21st Place about 10:45 p.m., according to a statement from Chicago Police.
The man was shot in the groin when a bullet came through the window frame, minutes after another person in the home got a threatening phone call, police said at the time. He was taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.
Officers on patrol near West 21st Street and South Pulaski Road heard the gunfire and saw a white car speeding away and “driving erratically,” police said.
A few minutes later, the officers heard over their radios that a person was shot and followed the speeding vehicle and pulled it over, police said.
The driver, 22-year-old Deandre Noy, and the passenger, 23-year-old Anthony Hayes Jr., were ordered out of the vehicle and officers discovered two handguns inside the car, police said.
Hayes, of the 5400 block of West Quincy Street, was charged with one felony count of aggravated battery and one felony count of aggravated discharge of a firearm at an occupied building, police said.
Noy, of the 100 block of South Austin Avenue in Oak Park, was charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon, police said.
On Thursday, both Hayes and Noy were each ordered held on $250,000 bond, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office. They are both next scheduled to appear in court March 31.
