A woman accused of shooting a man in Round Lake on Sunday was arrested following a brief standoff that prompted the response of a SWAT team, officials said.
The Round Lake Police Department responded around 4 a.m. Sunday to a 911 wireless hang-up call in the 400 block of Haywood Drive in Round Lake.
Round Lake Police Chief David Prus said responding officers observed a 35-year-old Chicago man enter a residence with an apparent gunshot wound to his leg.
A significant amount of blood was located in a vehicle and on the driveway.
A witness reported to officers that the male victim had been shot by Chanel McClinton, 39, of the 400 block of Haywood Drive in Round Lake.
The witness said the shooting occurred in a vehicle in the driveway of the residence, Prus said.
Both subjects went into the residence and officers were notified by a friend of McClinton’s that there were two juveniles in the residence.
McClinton refused commands to exit the residence and the Northern Illinois Police Alarm System (NIPAS) was activated.
A level two Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System (ILEAS) callout was also initiated for more assistance from surrounding police agencies, Prus said.
McClinton later exited the residence and peacefully surrendered as additional officers arrived on the scene.
The male victim was transported to an area hospital around 5:23 a.m. for treatment and he has since been released.
Detectives have determined the shooting was a domestic-related incident that appears to be isolated, Prus said.
McClinton was charged with aggravated battery with a firearm, a Class X felony.
She is being held in the Lake County Jail on a $250,000 bond, jail records show. She would need to post $25,000 cash in order to be released.
McClinton is scheduled to appear in court again on May 3.
