Chicago Police charged Tavell Cobbins, 25, of the 200 block of North Lavergne, with one count of Aggravated Battery with a Firearm, one count of Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and one count of Resisting a Police Officer in connection with a shooting outside a nightclub on January 29.
    At approximately 2:30 AM, the 25-year-old victim was engaged in an altercation with several men inside the nightclub on the 800 block of West Evergreen Avenue. Upon leaving the club, the dispute continued and one of the men brandished a handgun and fired several shots, one of which struck the victim in the leg.
    Officers responding to the scene monitored a radio dispatch describing the shooter and the vehicle in which he fled. Responding officers observed a man exiting a gray Pontiac in the 1600 block of North Sheffield Avenue, with both the vehicle and subject matching the descriptions given over the radio. The man was Cobbins, who was taken into custody after a brief struggle and was positively identified as the offender. Officers recovered a semi-automatic handgun from Cobbins.
