CHICAGO — Terry Alexander, 52, of southwest suburban Romeoville has been charged with shooting a 24-year-old man in Morgan Park, police said.
The shooting victim was sent to Advocate Christ Hospital in nearly Oak Lawn in critical condition after the domestic fight that occurred around 7:30 p.m. in the 11800 block of South Oakley Avenue, according to police.
Alexander shot the younger man in his stomach, said Officer Michelle Tannehill, a Chicago Police spokeswoman. Alexander turned himself in at the Morgan Park Police Station at 7:56 p.m. Saturday and was charged with one count of aggravated battery with a firearm, according to police.
He appeared in court Monday, where a judge ordered him held on a $25,000 bond, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which cited Cook County Circuit Court records. If Alexander posts bond, he would be released on electronic monitoring, records show. His next court date is Wednesday.
