A Southwest Side man has been charged with shooting another man during an attempted robbery in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood earlier this month.

About 2:40 p.m. on Sept. 7, Nemroy Murray Jr., 22, walked up to a 34-year-old man sitting in a vehicle in the 2500 block of West 71st Street, pulled out a gun and demanded his belongings, according to Chicago Police.

The older man struggled with Murray for the gun, which went off and grazed his chest, police said.

The 34-year-old drove himself to Holy Cross Hospital and later was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition, police said at the time.

Murray, who lives on the block where the shooting happened, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and attempted robbery with a firearm.

A judge on Friday ordered him held on a $350,000 bond, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. He is due back in court Wednesday.
