Bond was set at $300,000 Friday for a South Side man charged with shooting another man in the South Shore neighborhood.

Malon Moore, 28, faces felony counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm on an occupied vehicle and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to Chicago Police.

About 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, Moore walked out of a gangway in the 2900 block of East 79th Street and shot a 39-year-old man in the legs, police said.

Officers saw the shooting and chased Moore into a home in the 7900 block of South Escanaba, where they arrested him, police said.

The 39-year-old was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and his condition was stabilized, according to police, who initially said he was 41.

He was expected to appear in court again on Wednesday.
