Antonio Vickers, of the West Garfield Park neighborhood, was charged with felony counts of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to Chicago police. He is also wanted on a separate arrest warrant.

Vickers was taken into custody following the shooting about 5:30 p.m. Monday in the 1000 block of North Monticello. A 65-year-old man was on a sidewalk when Vickers ran up to him and shot him multiple times in the body, police said.
