1 man charged after Illinois State Police shooting

CHICAGO (AP) -

A 25-year-old man wounded last week in a Chicago taxi during a confrontation with Illinois State Police has been charged.

Authorities on Monday said Jonathan McIntosh was charged with aggravated assault to an officer and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

McIntosh is in custody at a hospital where he was treated for gunshot wounds. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney to speak on his behalf.

Troopers were conducting an unrelated traffic stop Thursday when a taxi driver flagged them down and said his passengers were refusing to pay. Troopers spoke to two men in the taxi's back seat.

Authorities say one pulled a gun and refused to drop it. A trooper fired into the car, hitting both men. A 23-year-old was released and does not face charges.
