Moreno was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, both felonies, according to Round Lake Park Police Chief George Filenko.

Police received a confidential tip Wednesday describing the vehicle involved and a possible name of a suspect in the shooting. Police found a 1998 silver Oldsmobile Delta 88, and a few hours later took Moreno into custody without incident at his home, Filenko said. He added that a possible second suspect is being sought as the investigation continues.
