A 21-year-old man told authorities he shot an 84-year-old man outside a South Side McDonald's restaurant because the elderly man had "disrespected" him, Cook County prosecutors said this afternoon.
The elderly man is moderately hard of hearing and didn't understand when his attacker asked him for $1 on Monday, according to prosecutors.
Melvin Hammond responded by shooting the man, hitting him in the thigh, Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto said as Hammond appeared in Cook County Criminal Court.
There isn't much more to say than what i've already said in other posts:
