COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A 20-year-old man posted an Instagram video claiming he's "going to shoot someone on the 1-2-2" Monday — and then went out and shot a man near 122nd Street, prosecutors said.

In his video, Juvone Steele, 20, waves a gun and makes his "1-2-2" threat, according to Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto, who spoke during Steele's bond hearing Wednesday.

About 4 p.m. Monday, Steele opened fire at a group of people in the 12200 block of South Normal Avenue — hitting one man in his heel, thigh and just below his eyebrow, Scaduto said.

Steele ran off, and got shot in his ankle about 10 minutes later in a completely unrelated shooting, prosecutors said.

Steele, who lives on the block where the shooting occurred, is currently on probation for a gun conviction. According to Scaduto, he was sentenced to 18 months of probation in May 2014 and has violated the probation multiple times. Steele currently has a violation-of-probation case pending.

After he was shot on Monday, his parents called 911 and Steele was treated at Roseland Community Hospital, police and prosecutors said.

In court Wednesday, Steele hobbled on crutches toward Cook County Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr., who denied bail after a brief hearing.

"You pose a danger," Bourgeois said.

Prosecutors said the victim didn't know Steele, but several people with the victim had seen Steele before and were able to identify him as the shooter. Police at the scene found five .40 caliber shell casings, Scaduto said.

Steele was arrested about 4:30 p.m. in the first block of West 111th Street, according to an arrest report. He was charged with aggravated battery by discharging a firearm.

Prosecutors provided no motive for the shooting, and police said Steele is a documented gang member.

According to police, the victim was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where his condition had stabilized.
