A convicted felon wanted for “recklessly” firing multiple shots inside an apartment building in Woodstock with a stolen gun has been arrested.
Donzell D. Adams, 32, of Woodstock, was charged with reckless discharge of a firearm, felon in possession of a weapon and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon subsequent offense.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Adams possessed a Springfield XD 40 pistol on February 20, 2022.
The pistol had been reported stolen in 2017.
Adams recklessly discharged the pistol four times, which caused bullets to travel into an apartment floor and ceiling, the complaint said.
One of the bullets went into an upstairs apartment and another went through a wall, traveling into a common area and through the front door of someone’s apartment, the complaint said.
The shooting happened in the 700 block of Leah Lane in Woodstock, which is where Adams was reported to be living at the time.
Adams was previously convicted of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in Cook County in 2010, meaning he is not allowed to possess any firearms, the complaint said.
An arrest warrant was issued two days after the incident.
Adams was taken into the custody of the Cook County Sheriff’s Office and transferred to the McHenry County Jail last week, more than a year after he had been charged in the case.
McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis ordered Adams held on a $75,000 bond, which was set on the warrant.
Adams is scheduled to appear in court on Monday for an arraignment hearing.
He remains held in the McHenry County Jail and would need to post $7,500 cash to be released.
