CHICAGO CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — Darryl Holloway allegedly yelled "I got your ass!" before shooting a Chicago Lawn man seven times on Monday, according to prosecutors.

The 22-year-old victim was the first of eight to be shot overnight Monday.

On Wednesday, prosecutors charged Holloway, 20, of the 1400 block of West 65th Street, with attempted first degree murder, and a Cook County judge ordered him held on $500,000 bond.

Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto told the judge Holloway shot the man on the 6200 block of South Artesian Avenue about 5 p.m. Scaduto said police officers who were about a block south of the scene heard a shot and turned to see Holloway fire multiple rounds "into the victim."

The victim suffered seven wounds to his chest and legs, according to court documents.

Police then chased Holloway and found him hiding under porch stairs in back of a nearby residence about a block away.

Scaduto said the man who was repeatedly shot remains in serious condition in the hospital and has undergone at least one surgery.

A public defender for Holloway told Cook County Judge Israel Desierto that Holloway may have graduated from grade school but did not attend high school.

The judge ordered Holloway held on $500,000 bond. Judge Desierto told Holloway he was not to have any contact with the victim or use any of his "influential control" to have those he knew contact the victim or the victim's family.
