Terry Alexander | Cook County sheriff's office

A 52-year-old southwest suburban man has been charged with a Morgan Park neighborhood shooting that left a 24-year-old man in critical condition Saturday night on the Far South Side.

Terry Alexander shot the younger man in the abdomen during a domestic fight about 7:30 p.m. in the 11800 block of South Oakley, according to Chicago Police.

The 24-year-old was taken to Christ Medical Center in critical condition. Police did not specify their relationship.

Alexander, a Romeoville resident, was taken into custody at the scene and later charged with one felony count of aggravated battery with a firearm, police said.

He appeared in court Monday, where Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered him held on a $25,000 bond, according to Cook County Circuit Court records. If Alexander posts bond, he would be released on electronic monitoring, records show. His next court date is Wednesday.
