A man suspected of shooting a teenager at a Steak 'n Shake drive-through in Batavia turned himself in to Aurora police Friday night.

Terry W. Hunter, 27, whose last known address was on the 1200 block of Yellow Pine Drive in Aurora, now sits in Kane County jail, facing charges of attempted murder, armed violence, aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.


Police say hunter Hunter fired into a car Tuesday evening in the drive-up lane at the restaurant, 1901 McKee St., while he and the car's occupants were arguing about the length of time being taken to order food. A 17-year-old boy from Carol Stream was shot in the leg, authorities said. The boy's companions drove him to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva, and the hospital called police.

The gun believed to be used in the shooting was found near the restaurant, and the suspect's vehicle was found at an apartment complex about a mile away, but Hunter remained at large until he surrendered about 7:45 p.m. Friday, police said.
