A Westmont man has been charged with firing a gun from his car at a group of people last week, authorities said Thursday.
Francisco Marquez, 20, of the 4100 block of North Park Street, was arrested Wednesday night in Melrose Park following the shooting July 5 in Westmont.
Police said Marquez stopped his maroon Ford Explorer about 6:15 p.m. that day near the intersection of Chicago and Linden avenues and fired multiple rounds at a group of people standing in a parking lot. They say Marquez then fled in his vehicle.
He was formally charged this week with reckless discharge of a firearm and aggravated assault. Bail was set at $30,000.
