Police have charged a 20-year-old Chicago man with an August shooting in Uptown that injured a 14-year-old boy and a 22-year-old man.

Kelsky Patterson is charged with two counts of aggravated battery by discharging a firearm, the Tribune reports. He is due in court Thursday.

Patterson's charges stem from the Aug. 31 shooting in which he allegedly shot at the two victims from his bike as they they were walking near Wilson and Broadway. The Sun-Times said a group approached the victims and a fight broke out, prompting Patterson to allegedly fire on them.

Patterson, who has what appears to be a tattoo of an AK-47 assault rifle on his forehead, was reportedly being questioned in connection to another shooting in Uptown.

Five men were shot outside Uptown Baptist Church in the 4500 block of Sheridan Road in a drive-by shooting in the early evening of Aug. 19. One victim, 21-year-old Darius Oliver, later died.

Ald. James Cappleman (46th) first announced the arrest via community newsletter Wednesday afternoon before police revealed the charges.

Patterson has not been charged in the Aug. 19 shooting though DNAinfo indicates both shootings were gang-related and they believe the two are connected.
