A Chicago man who allegedly shot two Evanston men was arrested Tuesday after police found the vehicle he was in during the shooting, police said.

Andre Williams, 26, of the 1600 block of West Juneway Terrace in Chicago, was charged with aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated discharge of a firearm. Williams allegedly shot the two men, both of whom were in a vehicle, Monday, police said. By using police surveillance cameras, Evanston detectives in the 7700 block of Paulina Avenue in Chicago found the vehicle from which the shots were reportedly fired and took the alleged shooter into custody.

The shooting appeared to be gang-related, police said Monday.

After the shooting, the two men who were shot drove to Presence Saint Francis Hospital, 355 Ridge Ave., where one of the men, 18, received treatment because he was struck in the knee. The other, 20, suffered a graze wound, police said.

The shooting occurred around 2 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Custer Avenue and Brummel Street, police said.
