WOODLAWN — A man has been charged in a Father's Day shooting that left a 3-year-old boy paralyzed in Woodlawn, police said.
The boy, Devon Quinn, was in his dad's car in the 6100 block of South Kimbark Avenue at 6:15 p.m. Sunday when shots rang out, according to Officer Michelle Tannehill, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.
Devon was struck in his right shoulder, Tannehill said. His dad brought him to University of Chicago Hospital before he was transferred to Comer Children's Hospital.
The boy's mother told reporters that he is expected to survive, according to media reports. Police on Thursday said the boy was paralyzed in the shooting.
Police identified Desean Wynn, 23, as the shooter and arrested him on Tuesday, according to a news release.
Wynn, of the 4400 block of South Dearborn Street, faces charges of first-degree murder, aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon by a convicted felon on parole, police said.
In the aftermath of the shooting Tuesday, Woodlawn pastor Corey Brooks announced that he'd brokered a truce among gangs in the area.
