A 19-year-old Chicago man pleaded guilty to firing shots last May at people standing outside a Palatine apartment building.

In exchange for his guilty plea to aggravated discharge of a firearm, Freddy Robles, of the 2500 block of Oak Park Avenue, was sentenced to four years in prison. Additionally, Robles pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced to one year in prison. The judge ordered the sentences to run concurrently.

No one was injured in the shooting, which took place about 1:30 a.m. May 4. Responding to a report of shots fired in the 1800 block of Green Lane North, Palatine police found a window broken by a bullet and two bullet holes in the wall of an apartment of a man who claimed he was awakened by gunfire.

Several people were hanging out outside a nearby apartment building at the time, police said.

Chicago police provided information that lead to Robles' arrest, authorities said.

Robles received 151 days credit for the time he has spent in custody since his arrest. He was also ordered to pay nearly $2,000 in fines.
