A Waukegan man is facing multiple felony charges after he allegedly fired a shotgun last week at an apartment building in Waukegan.
Dustin L. Adams, 33, of the 700 block of Linden Avenue in Waukegan, was arrested by officers with the Waukegan Police Department on Wednesday.
A criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court alleges that Adams discharged a shotgun in the 700 block of Linden Avenue in Waukegan.
The incident happened around 3:40 a.m. Wednesday and the complaint said that Adams discharged the weapon “in a reckless manner” that endangered the safety of a man who was in close proximity.
No one was injured in the shooting.
The complaint said that the shotgun Adams possessed was illegal because it had one or more barrels less than 18 inches in length.
Adams also did not have a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card while possessing the gun.
Adams was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, reckless discharge of a firearm and two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, which are all felony charges.
Lake County Circuit Judge James Simonian ordered the man held in the Lake County Jail on a $100,000 bond during a bond hearing on Wednesday.
Adams, who would need to post $10,000 cash in order to be released, remains held in the jail as of Tuesday.
A status of preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 19.
