CHICAGO — Two men were charged after police shot three people in Roseland on New Year's Day. Both men appear to have been among those shot.
Just before 2 a.m. Wednesday, officers responded to a call of shots fired in the 100 block of West 105th Street, according to police. When cops arrived, they allegedly found a man holding a gun on a back porch.
Police claim they told the man to drop his weapon, and instead, he pointed it toward the officers. As a result, officers opened fire.
The man and two other people were shot and taken to area hospitals. One weapon was recovered on the scene, police said.
On Friday and Saturday, two men were charged in the incident. In their mug shots, both men appear to be in hospital beds.
Princeton Burton-Williamson, 25, of the 7100 block of South Jeffrey Boulevard, was charged with two felonies: reckless discharge of a firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
Michael Williamson, 26, of the 5300 block of North Fenner Road in Fort Belvoir, Va., was also charged with two felonies: aggravated assault of an officer with a firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
Police offered no further information, but the Tribune reported Burton-Williamson was ordered held on $55,000 bail and Williamson on $50,000.
