Chicago man charged in May 4 Palatine shooting
Palatine police this week arrested a 19-year-old Chicago man on accusations he fired several shots last month toward a group of people standing outside a village apartment building.
Freddy Robles, of the 2500 block of Oak Park Avenue, faces a charge of aggravated discharge of a firearm in connection with the May 4 shooting, police said Thursday.
Police said officers were dispatched to a report of shots fired about 1:30 a.m. that morning in the 1800 block of Green Lane North. A 42-year-old man who lives in a nearby apartment told officers he was woken by what sounded like gunfire outside his residence. When police investigated, they found the apartment's living room window broken by an apparent gunshot and two additional bullet holes in a wall.
After interviewing several witnesses, police said, officers learned there had been several people hanging out in the vicinity immediately before the shooting. No one was injured.
During the investigation, police said, the Chicago Police Department provided Palatine investigators with information identifying Robles as the possible offender. Palatine investigators obtained further information which eventually led to a warrant being issued for Robles' arrest, according to police.
Robles was arrested Tuesday and detained on $200,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court June 28.
