A man and a teenage boy have been charged in connection with the shooting of a member of a rival gang early Saturday in the Armour Square neighborhood on the South Side.
Jovany Sarabia, 16, the alleged shooter, is charged as an adult with one felony count of aggravated battery/discharge of a firearm, according to police and the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.
Carlos Andrade, 23, the alleged getaway driver, is charged with one felony count of aggravated battery/discharge of a firearm and one misdemeanor count of driving on suspended license, as well as two traffic violations, police said.
The 26-year-old victim was walking with a friend in the 2400 block of South Karlov Avenue about 4:30 a.m. when a red four-door vehicle drove by and the occupants began yelling rival gang slogans, police said.
A few minutes later, Sarabia allegedly walked up to the man and shouted more slogans, fired numerous times and ran off, getting into the red vehicle driven by Andrade, authorities said.
The 26-year-old — a documented member of a rival gang — was shot once in the shoulder and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, police said.
Judge Laura Sullivan ordered Andrade and Sarabia each held on $300,000 bond in court Monday, according to the state’s attorney’s office. Both are next scheduled to appear in court July 18.
