    Kelsky Patterson

    A jailed South Side man with a tattoo of an AK-47 on his forehead has again been charged in connection with a shooting.

    Investigators say Kelsky Patterson, 20, was positively identified as the offender in an Aug. 19 shooting on the 1000 block of W. Wilson in which five people were shot. Darius Oliver, 21, died after days of being on life support.

    Patterson faces one count of first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm.

    Patterson was already in jail charged in connection with an Aug. 31 shooting that injured a 14-year-old boy and a 22-year-old man.
