A man and woman from Waukegan were both arrested after they allegedly shot a man in North Chicago and then forced their way into a nearby apartment where police found them hiding in a closet.
Cordell J. Miller, 32, of the 2600 block of West Monroe in Waukegan, and Daisha G. Allen, 28, of the 1600 block of Frazier Street in Waukegan, were both charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated unlawful restraint.
The North Chicago Police Department responded to calls of gunfire in the area of 14th Street and Victoria Avenue around 6:10 a.m. on May 22.
Prosecutors said during a bond hearing that Miller shot at another car while stopped at the intersection.
The gunfire struck a male occupant of the car in his leg, according to a criminal complaint.
The victim self-transported himself to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.
Officers located the suspect vehicle, occupied by Miller and Allen, who ran from the vehicle, prosecutors said.
The two suspects forced their way into a woman’s apartment on Victoria Avenue and threatened to kill the woman, prosecutors said.
Officers forced their way into the locked apartment and arrested Miller and Allen. They recovered a gun, ammo and drugs in the closet.
Miller, who was on parole for an armed robbery in McHenry County, was also charged with armed habitual criminal. He has several prior felony cases in Lake County, court records show.
Lake County Judge David Jasica set Miller’s bond at $750,000 and Lake County Judge Paul Novak set Allen’s bond at $100,000.
Both defendants are scheduled to appear in court again on June 17.
