    A Chicago man has been charged with murder in connection with a shooting in a South Side bar that left one man dead and four people wounded in January.

    Parrish Davis, 30, faces one count of first-degree murder, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated battery with the discharge of a firearm -- all felonies, police said.

    He is scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday.

    Five people were shot in the early morning hours of Jan. 25 while attending a birthday party inside Rudy's Lounge, on the 5100 block of South Union Avenue. At the time, police said two men who were uninvited were escorted out of the lounge by security and, shortly after, shots were fired through the door of the lounge, striking five people inside.

    Elsaleem Mannte’el, 35, later died at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

    Police said their investigation revealed that Davis, of the 1100 block of South Richmond Street, was one of the males escorted out of the bar.

    Police accuse Davis of also shooting a 40-year-old man, who suffered a graze wound to the head; a 34-year-old woman, who suffered a graze wound to the neck; and a 37-year-old man, who suffered a graze wound to the arm, police said. All three survived the shooting.

    Davis has not been charged with injuring a 37-year-old man who suffered a gunshot wound to the neck in the shooting, although it was not immediately clear why, police said.
