A 23-year-old Chicago man was being held in Lake County jail Tuesday in lieu of $250,000 bail on charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm stemming from an altercation last month near Antioch.
Derrius L. Crenshaw, 23, of the 4700 block of South King Drive, was charged in a warrant with aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, and was arrested by Chicago police on Sept. 24, according to Sgt. Christopher Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies had responded to a call of shots fired at 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 12 in the area of North Addison Lane and Route 173 in Antioch Township, Covelli said. When when they arrived they found evidence of shots fired, but no victims or offenders.
Detectives determined Crenshaw was responsible for shooting at two adults, who told police there was an altercation with the suspect at a business near Routes 173 and 59 and the victims fled to the area of North Addison Lane where Crenshaw followed and opened fire on the victims, but didn’t hit anyone, Covelli said.
Crenshaw is scheduled to appear in Lake County Circuit Court Thursday.
