SHARE Man charged with July shooting

A man accused of shooting a woman in the head as she passed by in a car on the South Side this summer was ordered held in lieu of $900,000 bail on Saturday.

Travis Dunn had been wanted for the July 8 shooting in the 900 block of East 83rd Street for some time.

Prosecutors said the 20-year-old was walking with another man when he took out a gun and fired multiple times at a passing vehicle.

The front seat passenger, an 18-year-old woman, was shot in the head after the bullets pierced the rear window — but survived, police said.

The driver and a back seat driver were not injured.

The victim was able to identify Dunn as the shooter, prosecutors said.

Police also recovered bullets from the vehicle, as well as shell casings at the scene.

Although prosecutors asked that Dunn, of the 500 block of East 50th, be denied bond, Cook County Judge James Brown set his bail at $900,000.

He is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

A motive was not provided in court. The woman’s condition was also not provided.

Dunn has no felony convictions but has seven misdemeanor convictions, as well as as a juvenile conviction for aggravated battery.
