Jesse J. Sanchez, 29.

A parolee, who was wearing an ankle monitor, was arrested after prosecutors say he began firing shots from a ghost gun while walking in a residential neighborhood in Grayslake.

Jesse J. Sanchez, 29, was charged with reckless discharge of a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm with a revoked FOID and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

The Grayslake Police Department responded around 12:30 p.m. Thursday to the 300 block of Clarewood Circle in Grayslake for a report of shots fired.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Kelse Banks said Sanchez was at his girlfriend’s home.

The two got into a verbal argument and Sanchez left the home.

Banks said the man began walking between houses in the neighborhood and firing shots into the air from a handgun.

Sanchez’s girlfriend witnessed him firing the gun.

A neighbor heard a gunshot and saw Sanchez walking around a home and then heard another shot, Banks said.

Officers talked to other witnesses and obtained surveillance video. Other witnesses also reported hearing several shots fired.

Officers arrested Sanchez and found a loaded 9mm handgun in his pocket.

The gun had no serial number and is considered a ghost gun, Banks said.

Sanchez is a convicted felon and has no Firearm Owner Identification card or concealed carry license.

Bullet casings were recovered from the scene, police said. No injuries were reported as a result of the shooting.

Sanchez was wearing an ankle monitor when he was arrested and officers learned he was on parole for an aggravated unlawful use of a weapon offense in Cook County. He had been paroled in August.

Lake County Judge Christopher Lombardo set bond at $500,000, meaning Sanchez would need to post $50,000 cash to be released.

Sanchez remains held in the Lake County Jail.
