Waukegan police say they've issued an arrest warrant for a man involved in a shooting there last week.

One person was shot through the right hand at about 10 a.m. Monday, April 14, in the 0-100 block of Philippa Avenue.

Police say they're looking for Tommie Harris, 26, whose last known address was in North Chicago. He's considered armed and dangerous.

Harris has been charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school, aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated battery.

Following the shooting, a black Chevy Monte Carlo was seen leaving the scene. A short time later, police stopped that vehicle in the area of Washington Street and Victory Avenue.

Shanese Richardson, 30, of the 800 block of 14th Street, North Chicago, was driving that vehicle, police said. Richardson was arrested and charged with armed violence, aggravated use of a weapon, no FOID card, no concealed carry permit, unlawful possession of cannabis, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, heroin, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance, cocaine.

Richardson posted bond and was released. She appears again in court Thursday.

The shooting victim was treated and released from a nearby hospital.

Anyone who encounters Harris should call 911, police said.
