Two Suspects Held in Uptown Shooting of Feb. 25

Feb. 26, 2010 - Two men are in police custody for an afternoon shooting that occurred on Chicago's north side on Thursday that left a South Side woman wounded. At about 4:15 p.m. five or six gunshots were fired during the busy afternoon commute at Wilson and Broadway in Uptown. Some people say they heard five shots, some say six. Dontaneous Salley (right), 22, of the 4400 block of N. Racine and Jeremiah Moore (left), 20, of the 800 block of W. Sunnyside Avenue, were each charged with one count of aggravated battery with a firearm early Saturday morning. Both addresses are in zip code 60640 and in Chicago's 46th Aldermanic Ward. Lake Effect News reports tonight that "witnesses told police that a man holding a gun at his side approached a small crowd of men and began firing at them. One of the bullets struck a 21-year-old woman in her thigh as she waited with her baby at the CTA bus stop at 1110 W. Wilson. Police picked up two men, ages 22 and 20, moments after the shooting and are holding them in police custody as the investigation continues. The men have not yet been charged as of Friday afternoon."

They were taken into custody at Wilson and Sheridan, just two blocks east of Wilson and Broadway. Police recovered shell casings at 4601 N. Broadway. Oh... just to balance this out and avoid stupid accusations of racism for showing mugshots of Black people, here's a mugshot of a White dude (right) who did something completely unrelated to the shooting story above.
