UPTOWN — A man accused of firing shots near the Wilson Red Line station was ordered held on $400,000 bond at a weekend hearing, officials said.

The gunman allegedly shot at someone near the 1107 W. Wilson Ave. station on Thursday about 6:30 p.m., police said.

Though it isn't clear who the gunman was aiming for, pedestrians were in his line of fire, police said.

No one was injured in the incident.

Marcus M. Dixon, of the 300 block of North Broadway Avenue in south suburban Joliet, was arrested minutes after the shooting after trying to flee on a southbound #36 Broadway bus, police said.
