Lindsey, 19, is also charged with criminal conspiracy, reckless endangerment, aggravated assault and unlawfully carrying a gun.
Police were dispatched last Thursday to the 1800 block of Citico Avenue where they found Jeremiah Hicks suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his torso and extremities.
He said Ms. Moore called him and asked him to come outside. He said when he complied, Lindsey began firing at him.
The victim was transported to the hospital and underwent surgery.
He was initially listed in critical condition.
Police said some of the bullets fired by Lindsey entered a house at 1809 Citico Ave. There were people inside, but no one was hit.
Police said Lindsey does not have a valid gun carry permit.
He is a validated gang member, according to police.
