Early Sunday morning, a sergeant had been in an unmarked police car around Glen Rock Avenue and Jackson Street in Waukegan. He saw a man, now identified as Guzman, walking and then talking to "unknown subjects in a black SUV style vehicle," according to police.

Guzman then took out a handgun and started firing at the vehicle, which drove away, police said. The sergeant pursued and arrested Guzman. No injuries were reported.

Guzman admitted he was a street gang member, according to the news release, and he will appear in court on Sept. 24.
