Excerpts from Fox32Chciago.com:

A second man has been charged in connection with the shooting of a Chicago firefighter earlier this month in Albany Park on the Northwest Side.

Jermaine White, 29, was charged with aggravated battery with a firearm. He was arrested Monday afternoon in Lansing. He was identified as the person who shot the on-duty firefighter just after 1 a.m. Feb. 2 as crews worked to put out a car fire in the 3300 block of West Wilson Avenue.

Another man, 29-year-old Hollis Williams, was charged with multiple felonies in connection with the shooting less than a week later.

Prosecutors said that Williams and the owner of a Chrysler 300 opened fire on two people who set the Chrysler ablaze and shot at a woman they were with. A 36-year-old firefighter who was caught in the crossfire was struck in the leg as he tried to put the fire out, and stabilized at Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
