Saul Ceja-Gonzalez, 26, of North Chicago

A 26-year-old man was arrested for firing three gunshots and then fleeing from police in North Chicago on Monday, prosecutors said.

Saul Ceja-Gonzalez, 26, of North Chicago, was charged with three counts of recklessly discharging a firearm, two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of resisting a peace officer.

North Chicago police were on patrol when they heard three gunshots on Monday, Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Emma Smoler said.

Officers searched the area and found three men standing near a car.

Ceja-Gonzalez put something inside the trunk and fled from officers, Smoler said during a bond hearing.

He was later located by neighbors and was arrested, Smoler said.

A gunshot residue test was conducted and came back positive.

Shell casings were also located next to the car, which was registered to Ceja-Gonzalez, Smoler said.

It was not known whether the shots were fired at anyone in particular.

Ceja-Gonzalez does not possess a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak set the man’s bond at $250,000, meaning he would need to post $25,000 to be released.

Ceja-Gonzalez remains held at the Lake County Jail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 5.
