Police arrest Chicago man who fired gun into Woodstock home where mother, children were inside

Jerry Guzman, 33, of Chicago.

A Chicago man was taken into custody on a warrant that alleged he shot a gun into a Woodstock home where a mother and her children were inside.

Jerry Guzman, 33, of the 2700 block of North Monticello Avenue in Chicago, was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, criminal damage to property, reckless discharge of a firearm and two counts of violating an order of protection.

An arrest warrant was issued for Guzman on March 3 following a shooting in the 1900 block of Sheila Street in Woodstock.

Guzman arrived in a vehicle at the residence of a woman, who had an active order of protection against Guzman.

The criminal complaint alleged that Guzman pulled a gun out and shot three times at the residence while the woman and her children were inside.

Guzman then discharged the gun at the woman’s vehicle, causing damage to the front passenger side tire. Damage to the vehicle was estimated to be more than $500.

During the shooting, one of the rounds missed the tire and ricochet into the victim’s residence. No one was injured during the incident.

Guzman was arrested by the Cook County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday — more than three weeks after the shooting.

A judge set Guzman’s bond at $200,000. He will be required to post $20,000 cash in order to be released from the McHenry County Jail.

A bond hearing and the scheduling of a preliminary hearing will take place on Tuesday.
