A 19-year-old Evanston man is scheduled to appear in Skokie District Court Wednesday on charges stemming from a weekend shooting incident on a west side street.

Police Commander Tom Guenther says Antoine Bouzie of 1109 Pitner Ave. is facing charges of aggravated battery with a handgun in connection with the shooting of a 22-year old Evanston man.

The victim told police he was walking with a friend in the 2000 block of Darrow about 12:30 a.m. Saturday when three other men approached them and one pulled out an automatic pistol and fired three or four shots at him before fleeing from the scene.

The victim was hit in the lower right leg and treated at a local hospital for his injuries.

Police say the victim recognized the man who shot him and later identified Bouzie as the gunman.
