Two Aurora men have been charged with attempted murder in two shootings late Friday night on Aurora's east side, according to police and court records.

Andrew Bueno, 24, of the 700 block of Superior Street, and Armando Delgado, 17, of the 1000 block of Tollview Avenue, were being held Monday at the Kane County jail on bails of $250,000 and $200,000, respectively.

No one was injured in the two shootings -- one at about 10:15 p.m. at Broadway Avenue and Bluff Street, and one at about 11:45 p.m. in the 600 block of North Avenue, police said. In both cases, two men approached other cars, showed a gun and fired shots at the drivers as they sped away.

In the first case, one of the attackers yelled a gang slogan and the car was hit with bullets, police said.

Police got a vehicle description from the second shooting, located the vehicle with Bueno and Delgado inside and pulled them over at 1:40 a.m. Saturday. Officers did not find any weapons, but said they found on Delgado a spent bullet casing matching the caliber used in the two shootings.

Bueno also was charged with DUI; Delgado, who is being charged as an adult, also was cited for resisting arrest and underage drinking, according to police and court records.

They also face charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm, which is a felony punishable by six to 30 years in prison.

Delgado does not have any previous criminal offenses in Kane County. Bueno has been arrested at least six times and jailed after being charged with driving while his license was suspended, according to Kane County court records.

Bueno's next court date is Oct. 1 and Delgado is due in court Oct. 2.
