Man faces charge after Chicago road rage shooting wounds boy

CHICAGO (AP) — Cook County prosecutors say the man driving a car carrying a toddler who was wounded during a shooting on Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive this week did not exchange gunfire with the offender who shot his grandson. Jushawn Brown on Thursday was given a $5,000 bond for illegal gun possession for the gun police recovered after the shooting that critically injured the infant. Prosecutors say the 43-year-old Brown placed a gun on his lap when the other driver brandished his gun. However, Brown did not return the shots fired at his vehicle, which crashed after the boy was shot in the temple. No other arrests have been reported. The wounded boy remained in critical condition Thursday at Lurie Children’s Hospital.
