A man is accused of walking into a store and shooting another man over the weekend in West Garfield Park.

Hassan Brewer, 31, is charged with felony counts of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, Chicago police said.

The charges stem from an incident which unfolded about 8:05 p.m. Aug. 7 in the 500 block of South Kostner Avenue, when Brewer allegedly got into a fight with a 27-year-old man inside a store, police said.

Brewer left the store, came back with a gun and allegedly fired shots at the man, striking him in the leg and abdomen, police said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.

Brewer was arrested less than an hour later in the 1900 block of West Ogden Avenue, police said.

He was expected to appear in court Monday.
