An Elgin man who fired a gun during an altercation outside a Schaumburg nightclub last April has pleaded guilty, court records show.

In exchange for his guilty plea Monday to aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and reckless discharge of a firearm, 21-year-old Jamal Cook was sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay $804 in fines.

Cook took a handgun from a car and fired two shots during a fight that took place at 2:19 a.m. April 20 in the parking lot of The Snuggery, in the 1500 block of North Roselle Road, Schaumburg police said.

No one was struck by the gunfire. Police had a description of Cook, who fled the scene and was arrested following a traffic stop on Golf Road.

Cook has been in Cook County jail on $150,000 bail since his arrest.

He received credit for the 95 days he has spent in custody.
