Police have arrested a Park City man wanted for firing shots that struck a vehicle and a condominium building in Mundelein in November.
Quinten Pratcher, 28, of the 4200 block of Greenleaf Court in Park City, was charged with one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, and three counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, a Class 4 felony.
The Mundelein Police Department responded around 9:15 p.m. on November 9 to the 300 block of Anthony Avenue for a report of shots fired.
Officers determined that the incident involved two subjects in separate vehicles, Mundelein Police Chief John Monahan told Lake and McHenry County Scanner.
One of the subjects, later identified as Pratcher, fired a gun from his vehicle.
The gunshots struck the victim’s vehicle but the victim was not struck by the bullets, Monahan said, adding that the shooting was not a random act.
At least one of the rounds fired went into an occupied apartment. No injuries were reported.
Investigators were able to obtain a significant amount of evidence, including video surveillance of the area, which led to the identification of Pratcher as the suspect, Monahan said.
The Lake County States Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and evidence and an arrest warrant was issued for Pratcher on November 17.
On December 23, Mundelein police detectives obtained information that Pratcher was possibly in the Kenosha, Wisconsin area.
The Kenosha Police Department provided assistance and was able to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle in which Pratcher was an occupant, Monahan said.
Pratcher was taken into custody on the arrest warrant without incident and transported to the Kenosha County Jail.
Pratcher was extradited on December 28 to the Lake County Jail where a bond hearing was held.
Court records show that Lake County Circuit Judge Charles Johnson set bond at $500,000.
On Wednesday, Lake County Circuit Judge Bolling Haxall reduced Pratcher’s bond despite objections from a prosecutor.
Jail records show Pratcher has been released from jail after posting bond.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 21.
