SHARE Man released without charges for Rogers Park shooting

A 24-year-old man was arrested on a warrant after a shooting Saturday in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side, but was later released.

Moise Kasongo of the 2000 block of West Jarvis Avenue was charged on a warrant for failure to appear, according to Chicago Police. Police initially said Kasongo was charged with aggravated battery/discharge of a firearm.

At 5:45 p.m. Saturday, a 23-year-old woman was walking in an alley in the 6900 block of North Greenview Avenue when she dropped her purse. As she bent down to pick up her belongings, she heard shots and felt pain, police said.

A friend took the woman, who suffered six gunshot wounds, to Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where she was listed in serious condition, police said.

The woman suffered gunshot wounds to the hip, abdomen and arm, police said at the time of the shooting.

After the shooting, Kasongo was taken into custody. He has since been released without being charged with the shooting.
