Three Aurora teenagers are facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in a Monday afternoon shooting that appears to be gang-related, authorities said Tuesday.
Korleone Darby, 19, of the 400 block of Grant Place, and two boys ages 14 and 15 also face charges after shooting a 16-year-old boy three times in the legs, Aurora police said.
The shooting occurred about 5 p.m. Monday on the 600 block of Woodlawn Avenue on the city's near west side.
Police said the three offenders were riding bicycles when they came in contact with the 16-year-old victim near his home and exchanged words. According to investigators, the 15-year-old fired multiple shots with a handgun, striking the victim three times in the legs.
The victim was treated at an Aurora hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries, authorities said.
The 14-year-old and the 15-year-old fled the scene on foot, while Darby left on his bicycle, police said. All three suspects were taken into custody minutes after the shooting — Darby at River and Prairie streets, and the two younger boys at Second and River streets.
Police said they found the gun they believe was used in the shooting on Darby.
Darby's bond was set at $1 million, while the 14-year-old and the 15-year-old are being held at the Kane County Juvenile Center.
