Deandre Binion Biography
Chicago police charged a man who allegedly opened fire on another vehicle on Lake Shore Drive, hitting 22-month-old Kayden Swann in the head earlier this month.
Swann was riding in a car with his grandmother and another man, Jushawn Brown, on South Lake Shore Drive just after 11 a.m. that morning when a speeding pickup truck pulled into his lane and nearly collided with his vehicle, Cook County prosecutors said during a court hearing earlier this month.
Brown stopped and yelled at the driver of the truck, who then brandished a firearm and asked Brown “what (he) wanted to do about it.” Brown then allegedly grabbed his own 9mm pistol and placed it on his own lap.
Brown tried to cross several lanes of traffic to get away from the truck, which was following close behind. Prosecutors said the truck driver then fired “multiple” shots at Brown’s vehicle, hitting Swann in the right temple.
Swann was put into a medically induced coma after the shooting, but his doctors said he has made a “remarkable” recovery. The boy is now breathing on his own and is out of the intensive care unit at Lurie Children’s Hospital.
