$75K bond for man charged after South Side shootout

$75K bond for Dashon Hendricks, charged after South Side shootout.

A felon who exchanged gunfire with the man who shot him Tuesday night in the South Side Douglas neighborhood is facing criminal charges.

Dashon Hendricks, 26, of the 7800 block of South Saginaw Avenue, was charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to Chicago Police.

Hendricks was allegedly behind the wheel of a vehicle in the 3500 block of South Rhodes Avenue at 10:08 p.m. when a gunman approached on foot and shot him in the chest, police said.

Hendricks returned fire and tried to drive away before crashing into a nearby parked vehicle, police said. A gun was recovered from inside the vehicle he was driving, and he was arrested.

Hendricks was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition, where he remains hospitalized Thursday, police said.

Bond was set at $75,000 for Hendricks Wednesday, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office. He is next scheduled to appear in court April 1.

The other shooter is not in custody. Area Central detectives are investigating.
