Two other men charged in the attack are Jose Alfredo Dominguez-Eleperez, 26, of Wheeling, and Noe J. Brito-Ramirez, 22, of Crystal Lake, Wauconda police said. Both are in Lake County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail that was set during a bond court appearance Thursday.
All three suspects are due back in court June 4 at 1:30 p.m.
Police said the three men went to the apartment in the 100 block of Main Street about 8:30 p.m. They entered after knocking, then tried to slash the victim, a 26-year-old Chicago man, with a knife.
When the victim's girlfriend got involved, Dominguez pulled out a handgun and shot the victim in the chest from 5 feet away, authorities said. The woman and her three children were not injured in the shooting.
The victim was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, but survived the shooting.
The three alleged gang members were arrested following a three-day manhunt, police said.
