A witness called 911 at 11:05AM to report seeing a man lying on the ground and another man walking away after one gunshot was heard.

Moments later, a second 911 call was received from a man who said he had shot an acquaintance after being attacked.

Officers took the suspected shooter, 67, into custody within five minutes on Halsted Street.
