Charged with battery and disorderly conduct, both Class A misdemeanors, are Demetrius H. Hendricks, 24, of Chicago, and Xavier M. Boateng, 23, of Bolingbrook.


Around 4:15 p.m. Friday, police were dispatched to the 1500 block of Raymond Drive for a dispute between several parties in a parking lot.

Witnesses said one person was armed with a handgun, police said.

When officers arrived, two subjects fled the area on foot. Efforts to track them led police to enlist the assistance from the Aurora Police K9 unit.
