Jonathan Conyers has been arrested in a shooting on the Southside that left Demontez Russell in critical condition.
Conyers, 23, is charged with attempted first-degree murder.
An officer was nearby on Aug. 30 when gunshots rang out in the area of E. 19th Street and Read Avenue. The officer found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder.
An investigator went to the hospital to interview the victim, but he was undergoing a CT scan and was considered to be in critical condition.
Several witnesses at the scene described the shooter as a slim black male wearing a white shirt and dark pants. They said the shooter approached the victim while he was standing by a vehicle on E. 19th Street. He then opened fire on him.
Several employees of a nearby business were on break at the time and were near the shooting location.
Two other witnesses were located, who identified Conyers as the shooter.
Police said, "Both parties' description of events corroborated various other pieces of information known to investigators."
