A man is facing charges after allegedly shooting two women in December on the West Side.

Joshua Jones, 26, is charged with felony aggravated battery and aggravated discharge of a firearm, Chicago police said.

He was allegedly identified as the gunman in the incident, which happened Dec. 23, 2020, in the 4800 block of West Harrison Street, police said. Two women, 22 and 24 years old, were traveling in a vehicle that day when Jones allegedly opened fire, striking them both.

Jones was arrested by U.S. Marshals and the Chicago Fugitive Apprehension Unit Tuesday at Stateville Correctional Center, where he is serving an 8 year sentence for a felony gun conviction, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records and police.

He is due in bond court Friday.
