An Antioch man has been charged in connection with a shootout that took place in broad daylight in Zion where over a dozen shots were fired, police said.
Tyshawn J. Pickett, 24, of Antioch, was charged with one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm and one count of felon in possession of a firearm.
A Lake County grand jury indicted Pickett on the charges on Wednesday, court records show.
The Zion Police Department responded around 1 p.m. on June 27, 2020, to the 1900 block of Joppa Avenue for a report of a shooting.
Officers located 15 spent 9mm casings in the roadway.
Nearby surveillance cameras captured a black four-door vehicle with a light skin male black firing a handgun from the front passenger seat, police said at the time.
The shots were directed at a male who was on foot.
The surveillance video showed the pedestrian pull a handgun and return fire, police said.
Witnesses described the vehicle as being an older model Toyota with tinted windows.
The witnesses confirmed both men fired shots at each other.
There were no injuries and the Zion Police Department conducted a lengthy investigation into the case, identifying Pickett as being involved.
Pickett was also recently charged in another shooting in Zion, which occurred in the 2300 block of Jethro Avenue on February 1, 2020.
Pickett and a second man, Jamarri Pickett, 26, of Waukegan, fired almost two dozen shots into a car occupied by two victims, according to police.
Both Picketts were charged with attempted murder in that incident. No injuries were reported.
Tyshawn Pickett remains held in the Lake County Jail on a $2 million bond for both of his cases.
