A 26-year-old man with a White Sox logo tattooed on his face was charged Monday in connection with shooting another man who refused to take part in an armed robbery with him early Sunday outside Wrigley Field.

Marcus Harris, of the 1400 block of South Canal Street, was charged with aggravated battery/discharge of a firearm, obstructing identification, and attempted armed robbery with a firearm.

The shooting happened about 3:25 a.m. Sunday in the 1000 block of West Addison Street, police said. The victim, a 25-year-old man, told police that he, Harris and another person were walking down the street across from Wrigley Field when plans were made to rob someone.

The victim refused to take part and warned a potential robbery victim, according to police. This apparently angered Harris, police said, and when the victim walked away, Harris shot him in the back.

The victim, who police said has gang affiliations, was taken in serious condition to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he remained Tuesday, police said.

Harris was arrested Monday in the day by police on patrol in the 1000 block of West Argyle who noticed Harris by his distinctive facial tattoos.
