A Chicago man, who is a convicted felon, was arrested on a warrant for allegedly firing a gun in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Woodstock.
Undrea T. Taylor, 50, of the 5400 block of South Wood Street in Chicago, was charged with armed habitual criminal, two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, aggravated assault with a firearm, reckless discharge of a firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Taylor possessed a gun and ammunition despite being a convicted felon and not having a license to possess it.
Taylor allegedly discharged at least one round from the gun towards the sky while he was standing in a parking lot in the 1400 block of Commons Drive in Woodstock on September 2.
The complaint said Taylor discharged the gun “without regards for where the bullet may go when it comes back down.”
A bystander was also in the parking lot in close proximity to Taylor when he discharged the weapon, the complaint added. No injuries were reported.
Taylor has two prior convictions for felonies in Cook County, court records show.
On Friday, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office arrested Taylor on the warrant, which was issued on September 7.
Taylor remains held in the McHenry County Jail on a $100,000 bond, meaning he will need to post $10,000 cash in order to be released.
