A 53-year-old former Mount Prospect resident faces multiple charges after being shot in the leg during an altercation Saturday with Skokie police.

P. Alan Luche Corro, who lived in the 1000 block of Boxwood Drive, was charged Tuesday with two counts of felony aggravated assault, one count of unlawful use of a weapon, simple assault and attempted criminal trespass, according to Skokie police.

He was being held in lieu of $150,000 bond. His next court date is Sept. 24.

On Saturday, police were notified that a man who was involved in a battery in Evanston was traveling through Skokie on a CTA bus. A short time later, police responded to a report of a confrontation between the same man and a business owner in the 4800 block of Oakton Street, reports said. The man tried to kick in the front door of the business, then brandished a knife at police, reports said.

He refused to put down the weapon and lunged toward officers multiple times, was struck with a baton and sprayed with pepper spray, reports said. When he lunged again, he was shot in the leg, reports said.
