SHARE $1 million bond for man charged with West Pullman shooting

Bond was set at $1 million Saturday for a Far South Side man charged with shooting the mother of his children in their West Pullman neighborhood home last month.

Tarell Smith, 28, was arguing with the 23-year-old woman at the home in the 12000 block of South Perry at 3:05 a.m. Oct. 29 when he shot her with a handgun, according to Chicago Police.

She was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where her condition was stabilized, police said.

Smith is charged with aggravated domestic battery, aggravated battery with a firearm and home invasion involving the discharge of a firearm, police said.

A judge on Saturday ordered him held on a $1 million bond, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. He is due back in court Thursday.
