David Stuart, Johnny Richardson and Terris Williams | Chicago Police

Three men have been charged in connection with a shooting Sunday night that left two men injured in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

David Stuart, 23, faces one felony count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, while 30-year-old Johnny Richardson has been charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to a statement from Chicago Police. Terris Williams, 21, faces one felony count of aggravated fleeing and disregarding two traffic control devices.

About 9:40 p.m. Sunday, two men, ages 18 and 24, were standing outside in the 3000 block of West Lexington Street when a vehicle pulled up and someone from inside fired shots, police said.

The 18-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said. The older man suffered a graze wound to the right wrist, and he declined medical care at the scene. A police source said the two men are documented gang members.

Officers in the area saw a vehicle speeding away from the scene and gave chase, police said. Stuart, Richardson and Williams were soon arrested, with several weapons — including a rifle — recovered at the scene.

Stuart, of the 1600 block of South Komensky; Richardson, of the 800 block of South Kedzie; and Williams, of the 4300 block of West Washington, appeared in court Tuesday.

A judge ordered Stuart held without bond because he has a previous felony weapons conviction, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. He is due back in court Wednesday.

Bond was set at $75,000 each for Richardson and Williams, authorities said. They’re scheduled to appear in court again Oct. 5.
