A Chicago man was on probation for illegal gun possession when he shot a 5-month-old boy and two adults in Old Town on July 17, prosecutors said in bond court Sunday.

Prosecutors said surveillance video recorded footage of 21-year-old Teantun Davis getting out of a car and firing 14 rounds at two men as they ate a sandwich on the 1400 block of North Hudson around 7 p.m. A 19-year-old man was shot in the shoulder, and a 25-year-old man was shot in the buttocks.

The baby was sitting in a stroller about 100 yards away from the men when a bullet struck him near his right eye, according to prosecutors.

All three victims are recovering.

After the shooting, Davis allegedly returned to a nearby vehicle that sped from the scene. Witnesses provided the car’s license plate number to police, and officers arrested Davis when it crashed on the 3900 block of South Wentworth a short time later.

Moments before he was taken into custody, Davis threw a handgun that has been forensically linked to the bullets that struck the three victims, according to prosecutors. The gun, police said, was stolen from its owner in 2018.

Two other men who were in the car escaped. Police previously said one of them had also been arrested.

Defense attorney Steven Greenberg disputed prosecutors’ claims that Davis is the gunman who was captured on surveillance video.

Prosecutors said Davis is on two-years probation for illegal possession of a firearm. According to CPD records, Davis was arrested in that case on June 26, 2019, in the 900 block of North Cambridge.

Davis is charged with two felony counts of aggravated battery by discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

Judge John Lyke ordered Davis held without bail in the shooting case and also ordered him held without bail for violating the terms of his probation agreement.

CHICAGO – While announcing hundreds of federal agents will be deploying to Chicago, President Trump focused on recent victims of gun violence in the city during an address on Wednesday.

13-year-old Amaria Jones’ family has dreams about her and wake up crying because she isn’t there.

Jones was killed when a stray bullet came through the window of her Austin home and hit her in the neck while she was with her family.

President Trump acknowledged the little girl who’s death still breaks her family’s heart.

“For her to be 13. I think that hurts the most. She hasn’t even lived life,” President Trump said. If I would ask my sister today what is life. She couldn’t have defined it. Now that she’s gone and you ask me ‘what’s, what’s life?’ I can’t define it.”

Her sister, Mercedes Jones, still has no closure. At times, feeling hopeless every time she hears another person or child has been shot in the streets of Chicago.

“What have we come to? All this killing. What is it helping?” she said.

President Trump’s “Operation Legend” will send more than 200 federal agents to fight crime in Chicago doesn’t sit well with some residents, but for the family of Amaria Jones, they welcome it.

“Nope. After what happened to my sister, not one,” Jones said. “Nope, not at all.”

Pastor Ira Acree fears more innocent lives will be taken if something doesn’t change.

“We keep running in a ditch,” he said. “We not getting it right. We got to do something different.”

Mercedes Jones said she will continue to speak out against gun violence. She feels it’s what her sister would have wanted her to do.

Police are looking for silver Infiniti G35 or G37, 2 door, with no front license plate and tinted windows in regards to her murder. CPD believes the suspect fled in the sedan from the west Alley of Leclaire Avenue towards Thomas Street.
