A Zion man is being held on a $2 million bond for attempted murder after he allegedly fired shots at an occupied vehicle in the parking lot of a Waukegan gas station.
Marshon D. Knox, 24, of the 2500 block of 29th Street in Zion, was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, a Class X felony.
The Waukegan Police Department was called around 8:30 p.m. on May 24, 2021, to the Mobil gas station near Belvidere Road and Jackson Street for a report of a shooting.
Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Joe Florip told Lake and McHenry County Scanner at the time that officers located a shot-up 2019 Honda CR-V.
The Honda, which was reported stolen out of Racine, Wisconsin, was in the parking lot of the gas station in front of X Comm Wireless.
A grey hatchback sedan pulled into the parking lot and an unknown number of occupants exited the sedan and began to shoot at the Honda, Florip said.
The occupants of the Honda ran from the vehicle on foot. The shooters got back into the sedan and fled the area.
Florip said that officers recovered numerous spent shell casings from the scene.
A loaded semi-automatic handgun was also recovered in the Honda.
Witnesses only told police that the suspects were male blacks and a female black, Florip said. No one was injured in the shooting.
The number of shots fired and other details were not released.
A Lake County judge in June 2021 issued an arrest warrant for Knox for his alleged involvement in the case, court records show.
The arrest warrant carried a $2 million bond. Knox was arrested on the warrant last weekend.
The warrant alleges Knox fired multiple shots at two men with the intent to kill them during the May 24, 2021, shooting.
Court records show Know also has an active gun case out of Zion that was charged in October 2020 and an active gun case out of Gurnee that was charged in November 2019.
He remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $200,000 cash in order to be released.
