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.
