Ware was arguing with a 41-year-old man about 5:15 p.m. in the 300 block of East 47th Street when he attacked him with a baseball bat, according to Chicago Police. The younger man then pulled out a gun and fired shots, at which point Ware pulled out his own gun and returned fire.

Ware suffered a gunshot wound to the back, while the other man was shot in the arm, police said. Ware was taken in critical condition to University of Chicago Medical Center. The other man showed up at the same hospital, where his condition stabilized.

Ware initially gave investigators at the hospital a false name, police said.

Judge David R. Navarro ordered Ware held without bail during a hearing on Monday, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. His next court date was scheduled for Friday.
