A warrant has been issued for a man accused of firing at least two shots from a revolver at his wife in Zion Sunday evening, police said.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Darnell A. Young, 44, of Zion, on the charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm, reckless discharge of a firearm and aggravated assault.

The Zion Police Department responded around 5 p.m. Sunday to the 3100 block of Elim Avenue for a report of shots fired.

Police said that Young allegedly fired at least two rounds from a revolver at his wife while they were both standing in the 3100 block of Elim Avenue.
