Aurora man charged in Thanksgiving shooting
Bond was set Tuesday for a 30-year-old man accused of opening fire at a group of people early Thanksgiving morning in Naperville, prosecutors said.
Dion Knight, of the 800 block of Commonwealth Avenue, Aurora, is charged with aggravated battery with a gun, possession of a firearm by a street gang member, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, according to a news release from the DuPage County state's attorney's office on Tuesday.
Knight's bond is set at $300,000. He must post $30,000 bail to be released from the DuPage County jail, where he remained Tuesday evening.
Prosecutors said that at about 2 a.m. on Nov. 24, Knight drove through an apartment complex parking lot on Fairway Drive and began shooting at a group of people. He is accused of shooting one person in the chest and causing non-life-threatening injuries before fleeing from the parking lot, according to the release.
Knight was in custody at the DuPage County jail on charges stemming from an unrelated Feb. 4 arrest, in which is he charged with felony possession or use of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, court records show.
He is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 21.
