CHICAGO — A second man has been charged in the Jan. 30 shooting that paralyzed Marshall High School basketball coach Shawn Harrington.
Cedryk Davis, 23, of the 700 block of North Hamlin Avenue in Humboldt Park, was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm.
As Harrington drove his daughter to school on Jan. 30, gunmen opened fire in the 3800 block of West Augusta Boulevard. Harrington, who was stopped at a red light, reached over to shield his daughter.
He was shot in his back and is paralyzed from his waist down. Prosecutors said police found a bullet lodged in the headrest of his daughter's seat.
Harrington, an assistant basketball coach at Marshall, 3250 W. Adams St., thinks the shooting was a case of mistaken identity. He typically drives a blue truck but was using a rented white car when he got shot.
"We were just on our way to school and work," said Harrington, 38. "The guys were looking for a white car."
In February, 21-year-old Deandre Thompson, of the 800 block of North Springfield Avenue, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in the shooting.
Davis was slated to appear in bond court Wednesday.
