A man has been charged with shooting another man Sunday night in the Avondale neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
The 19-year-old man was sitting in a vehicle at 8:25 p.m. April 15 in an alley in the 3400 block of West Belmont when 22-year-old Rafael Serna walked up and fired shots, according to Chicago Police.
The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and arm and a graze wound to the head, police said. He was taken in critical condition to Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
A police source said the shooting appeared to be drug-related.
Serna, of the Humboldt Park neighborhood, was arrested about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday after he walked into the Shakespeare District police station “to follow up on attempts by police to contact him,” police said. He was charged with a felony count of attempted first-degree murder.
Serna is being held without bond at Cook County Jail, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. His next court date was set for Thursday.
