One of two juveniles has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after prosecutors say they fired shots during a robbery and attempted home invasion, leaving a woman shot in Woodstock.

Quran Broomfield, then 17, of Rockford, was charged as an adult in March 2023 with armed robbery, attempted home invasion, aggravated discharge of a firearm, two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful possession of a handgun under 18.

Broomfield, who is now 18, “took a substantial step” toward entering a home in the 1700 block of Yasgur Drive in Woodstock on January 24, 2022, while knowing people were inside the home, according to a charging document filed by prosecutors.

Broomfield used force by discharging a firearm into the residence, prosecutors said.

The teenager robbed another juvenile of their phone and ear pods at gunpoint, prosecutors said.

Broomfield was also illegally possessing a 9mm handgun because he was under the age of 21 and did not have a Firearm Owner’s Identification card, prosecutors said.

Responding officers arrived on the scene and located a woman who had sustained a gunshot wound to her shoulder.

The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District transported the victim to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Woodstock.

She was then transported by a LifeStar medical helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. Her injuries were non-life-threatening.

Police said at the time that the suspects fired several rounds at the female victim and her acquaintance before fleeing the area in a white sedan, possibly a Cadillac CTS.

Prosecutors said the two of them and two other victims had gotten into their car to go to the store when Broomfield and his co-offenders approached the car.

They ordered everyone out and took their phones and personal belongings at gunpoint.

The offenders unsuccessfully tried to enter the victims’ home. Broomfield and his co-offender fired several times at the house while leaving, prosecutors said.

It was determined the bullet that struck the woman was fired by the co-offender.

The suspects were suspected of stealing a vehicle and committing several armed robberies in the Rockford region within a short time span of the Woodstock incident, Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb said at the time.

Broomfield was petitioned to the juvenile court and detained in early December 2022, court documents show.

He was released from custody to his mother less than two weeks later but was taken back into custody after being charged as an adult in March 2023.

Court records indicate additional suspects, who are minors, have been charged in addition to Broomfield.

Broomfield pleaded guilty on Wednesday to armed robbery, a Class X felony, in exchange for the rest of the charges being dismissed.

McHenry County Judge Mark Gerhardt approved the plea and sentenced Broomfield to 20 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections pursuant to the agreement.
