Prosecutors say a man was stabbed and suffered a graze wound after a woman fired multiple shots at him while he was trying to flee to his vehicle in Park City.
Sharice C. Bell, 42, of Park City, was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm and two counts of domestic battery.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Manuel Mandujano said Bell struck a man in the face, busting his lip open, on August 3 in Park City.
The victim also reported that Bell used an unknown object to stab him in the leg.
The man retreated out of the door and went to his vehicle.
Bell followed him and pulled out a gun once the two, who are in a dating relationship, reached the vehicle, Mandujano said.
Bell fired approximately three to five rounds at the man, Mandujano said.
Officers found the vehicle had been struck by the bullets. Four spent 9mm casings were recovered.
Mandujano said officers saw a small puncture wound on the victim’s inner thigh and a graze wound near his quadricep.
The victim was treated by the Gurnee Fire Department and declined transport to the hospital.
Bell fled the scene but officers later located her vehicle, Mandujano said. They ordered her out of the car and arrested her.
Officers searched the car and found a loaded gun.
Attorney David Weinstein, who is representing Bell, called the incident an “ugly domestic” and said the alleged victim battered Bell, causing her to bleed.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak denied a bond reduction request during a court hearing. Bell’s bond remains set at $350,000.
She would need to post $35,000 cash in order to be released from the Lake County Jail.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 7.
