A 29-year-old Chicago resident was arrested Monday in connection with an Evanston shooting that took place in February.

A 45-year-old man was sitting in his car in the 900 block of Howard Street on Feb. 10 when the Chicago man allegedly approached the vehicle and began arguing over a previous traffic incident, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The Chicago man then allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired twice at the victim hitting him once in the left arm. The man who was shot was treated at St. Francis Hospital.

The Chicago man was spotted by Evanston police officers on Monday in the 1900 block of Dempster Street, Dugan said. He was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated battery with a firearm, which is a felony.
