A Richmond man was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm after a shooting at his home on Tuesday night, McHenry County sheriff's officials said.

Sheriff's officials responded to the home of Bryon J. Kelly, 19, on the 7900 block of Burgett Road, Richmond, at about 8:45 p.m. for a dispute where shots were discharged from a weapon, according to police.

The victim came to Kelly's house to drop off a friend, when Kelly reportedly shot a round in the direction of the victim's truck, police said. The victim was not injured.

During the incident Kelly reportedly also pointed the weapon toward the victim's head, yelling at him to leave the property, according to the release.

When police arrived they found two shotguns and a rifle, but Kelly did not possess a valid FOID card, according to police. Kelly reportedly told police he shot at the victim because he would not leave his property, police said.

Kell was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm without a FOID card, possession of ammunition without a FOID card.

On Wednesday his bond was set at $80,000 in McHenry County Court. Kelly will next be in court at 9 a.m. on Friday.
