CHICAGO (CBS) — Three men have been charged in a shooting that left four people wounded earlier this week, on the old site of the ABLA Homes public housing development on the Near West Side.
Marcus Daniels, 31, of the 700 block of South Tripp Avenue, was charged with four counts of aggravated battery with a firearm, one count of aggravated fleeing and eluding police and one count of possession of a stolen motor vehicle, police said.
Demetrius Schaffer, 26, of the 1400 block of West 13th Street and Lavelle Alford, 18, of 80th and Morgan streets, were charged with four counts each of aggravated battery with firearm, police said.
Daniels, Schaffer and Alford were expected in court later Thursday, while a fourth suspect remains in custody and has not been charged formally yet, police said.
Four weapons were recovered from the suspects who were apprehended after a short chase, police said.
A woman shot in the head was taken to University of Illinois at Chicago Medical Center in serious condition, said Gaines. A second person in unspecified condition was also taken to UIC. The two other victims were taken in an unknown condition to Stroger Hospital of Cook County, according to Gaines.
The scene of the shooting was on the onetime site of the Grace Abbott Homes high-rise public housing complex, one of four projects that once made up the sprawling ABLA Homes. The area has since been under redevelopment as a mixed-income complex called Roosevelt Square.
