Two men were charged in connection to a shooting that took place early Sunday in Carpentersville, police said.

Christopher T. Abellan, 27, of the 300 block of Crystal Street, Cary, appeared in Kane County bond court Thursday on charges of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, unlawful use or possession of weapons by a felon, and possession of a firearm without a valid Firearm Owner's ID card, court records show.

About 10 shots were fired just before 1 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of Berkshire Circle and Wakefield Drive, where a .22-caliber revolver was recovered, Carpentersville Police Cmdr. Erman Blevins said.

Court records show that Abellan used a .22-caliber revolver to try to kill another man. He also discharged the weapon in the direction of a second man.

Abellan's bail was set at $1 million and his next court date is Sept. 17.

Jose A. Resendez, 26, of the 800 block of Doral Drive, Marengo, was charged with aggravated battery of a firearm and appeared Monday in Kane County bond court, court records show. His bail was set at $500,000.

Blevins declined to release more details about the shooting pending court proceedings.

Court records show that Abellan was arrested in Carpentersville in March 2005 on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of 2.5 grams or less of cannabis, and failure to give information or render aid after a crash.

He eventually pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 15 days in jail, Kane County court records show.

In January 2006, Abellan was arrested in Carpentersville on charges of aggravated battery to a peace officer and resisting arrest, records show. He pleaded guilty to felony resisting arrest and was sentenced to 30 months in prison.
