Evanston Man Charged in Shooting
By Larry Gavin

At approximately 7 p.m. on Jan. 12, Evanston police responded to a call of shots fired at Dempster Street and Fowler Avenue, said Commander Jay Parrott of the Evanston Police Department. When police arrived at the scene, they observed a “hostile group of individuals” and learned one individual was struck in the head with a firearm and two shots were allegedly fired at two different people on scene, said the Commander.  Police took four persons into custody for further investigation, he said. 

Police detectives charged an Evanston man, age 20, with aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated battery on a public way, which charges were approved by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, said Commander Parrott. 

Police were unable to recover the firearm used in the incident, however an expended shell casing from one of the fired gunshots was located on the scene along with two unexpended bullets, the Commander said.
