A convicted felon has been charged with attempted murder for shooting a man multiple times in Zion earlier this year, court records show.
Richard D. McMath, 37, of the 2000 block of Carmel Boulevard in Zion, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon.
A criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court alleges McMath discharged a gun in the direction of a 27-year-old man.
Zion Police Department Lt. Christopher Sweeting said the shooting occurred in the 2900 block of 31st Street in Zion on March 22.
McMath allegedly intended to kill the victim when he fired numerous shots, leaving the victim with multiple gunshot wounds, the complaint said.
Paramedics transported the victim to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan for treatment.
An arrest warrant was issued for McMath on March 25 and he was taken into custody in late October by the Zion Police Department.
Lake County Judge Paul Novak ordered McMath held on a $1 million bond during a bond hearing.
McMath remains held in the Lake County Jail and would have to post $100,000 cash in order to be released.
An arraignment hearing is scheduled for November 19.
