A Chicago man was charged with two felonies after allegedly shooting another man last month on the Dan Ryan Expressway near Park Manor.

Tykeith D. Barnes, 28, was taken into custody Saturday and charged with aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in connection with the Jan. 24 shooting, according to a statement from Illinois State Police.

About 10:20 a.m., a 29-year-old man was driving south just before 75th Street when he saw Barnes’ silver car behind him, police said. Barnes was trying to pass him but was blocked by traffic.

After moving over to the right of the 29-year-old’s vehicle, Barnes fired multiple shots at the passenger side, police said. He then exited the expressway at the 75th Street exit.

The 29-year-old was shot in the leg and brought himself to St. Bernard Hospital for treatment, according to Chicago police.

His wound was non-life threatening, state police said.

Barnes is being held without bail at Cook County Jail awaiting a Friday court hearing, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office.
