A Humboldt Park man faces an attempted murder charge after allegedly shooting a man earlier this year in the West Side neighborhood.

Travoy Johnson, 25, shot a man while intervening in a fight between the man and a woman Jan. 25 in the 1000 block of North Ridgeway Avenue, Chicago police said.

The man, 31, was struck in the shin about 6:15 p.m. and took himself to Saint Mary’s and Elizabeth Medical Center in good condition, police said.

Police arrested Johnson Monday in the 800 block of North Hamlin Avenue after identifying him as the shooter, police said.

He was expected to appear in court later Tuesday.
