The shooting happened December 12 at around 10:39 p.m.

Officers say two men wearing Chicago Bull's colors boarded the train and were celebrating Chicago's win over the 76ers when they became involved in an argument with other passengers.

When the train stopped at the 46th and Market Street, two male passengers exited the train onto the platform.

One of the subjects pulled a gun and fired into the train car at the two Bull's fans.

Police say the bullet struck one of the men in the left side of his stomach and the second man in the left thigh.
