A Chicago man with what appears to be a tattoo of an AK-47 on his forehead has been charged in an August shooting in the Uptown neighborhood.

Kelsky Patterson, 20, of the 4600 block of South Drexel was charged with two counts of aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm in the shooting that injured a 14-year-old boy and 22-year-old man, Chicago Police said.

Police said the victims were walking near Broadway and Wilson on Aug. 31 when they were confronted by a group and a fight ensued. Patterson is accused of firing shots from a bicycle at the man and boy, police said.

The 14-year-old boy was listed in critical condition at Illinois Masonic Hospital and the 22-year-old man was released from Weiss Hospital.

Patterson was due in bond court Thursday morning.
