CHICAGO, Illinois (WBBM) — The CTA worker who shot a man inside the 95th Red Line station faces two felony charges.
Sylvester Adams, 53, is charged with one felony count of first-degree attempted murder and one felony count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
Adams was identified as the person who shot another man following a verbal and physical altercation inside the 95th Red Line station early Saturday morning.
Video from a bystander shows the victim shoving Adams to the ground before walking away down the stairs, that’s when he retrieved a handgun, walked towards the staircase, and fired 10 times – striking the victim three times in the lower abdomen, back, and lower left leg.
The victim was taken to the University of Chicago Hospital in critical condition.
In a statement, CTA confirmed that Adams worked as a customer assistant, and they are pursuing termination. It was also confirmed that he violated several other rules including the prohibition of possessing a firearm.
He is due in bond court on Sunday.
