A South Elgin man is in custody after threatening a St. Charles man with a handgun early Thursday morning.
At approximately 12:27am Thursday morning, St. Charles police officers were dispatched to the 200 block of West Main Street for a report of a man with a gun. There were reports of several shots fired and the suspect was last seen southbound on 3rd Street, from West Main Street.
An investigation discovered that that the 31-year-old offender had threatened an undisclosed adult male victim by pointing a gun directly at him. As the offender then fled the area, he discharged the weapon in the 0-99 block of South 3rd Street.
There were no reported injuries or damage to property due to this incident.
The offender was later located near an address in unincorporated St. Charles, where after a brief foot chase, he was taken into custody without further incident.
According to police, this was a domestic-related incident that was isolated to the parties involved and not a random act of violence.
The suspect has been charged with Aggravated Battery/Public Place – Class 3 Felony – (1 Count), Aggravated Battery/Use Deadly Weapon – Class 3 Felony – (1 Count), Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon – Class 4 Felony – (1 Count), Reckless Discharge of a Firearm – Class 4 Felony – (4 Counts), and a variety of misdemeanors.
The suspect was later transported to the Kane County Jail to await a bond hearing.
