Wilson, of the 8200 block of South Loomis Boulevard, stands accused of shooting two men in the 1200 block of West 79th Street on Saturday about 8:35 p.m, police said.
Andrew Jackson, 27, of the 7600 block of South Saginaw Avenue, was shot multiple times and found dead at the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
A 41-year-old man was shot in the leg and taken in good condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.
Police cuffed Wilson shortly after the shooting when a witness identified him as the shooter, police said, adding that a security camera at a nearby store also caught the shooting on tape.
The shooting temporarily caused the Chicago Transit Authority to reroute buses in the area, according to an alert from the transit agency.
