Round Lake Beach police were called by people living on the 1300 block of Ridgeway just after 8:30 p.m. who reported that a car had driven past their house flashing gang signs and then left the area, police said in a release.
Shortly after, the same people encountered the vehicle at a strip mall on the 1200 block of Hainesville Road, where one gunshot was fired, police said.
A follow-up investigation led police to find the vehicle and gun in Grayslake.
Tamayo is being held on a $200,000 bond.
