Two people have been charged in connection with a May 29 home invasion to rob a man of an ounce of marijuana on Elgin's near west side, according to authorities and court records.
Tyrell D. Sumling, 29, of the 600 block of Center Street, Elgin, was arrested Saturday on felony charges of home invasion, armed robbery and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to Elgin police and Kane County court records.
Frankie Rivera Jr., 23, of the 100 block of Mora Road, Carpentersville, also was arrested over the weekend on the same charges, records show.
Police responded at 3:59 p.m. May 29 to a report of a man shot near the southeast corner of Edison and Larkin avenues. He was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, Elgin police said.
Detectives and officers from the department's gang unit investigated and obtained information leading to Sumling and Rivera, police said.
According to court records, Sumling and Rivera are accused of forcing their way into a home on the 0-99 block of North Edison, robbing a man of an ounce of marijuana and $10. Both Sumling and Rivera are accused of being armed and shooting the victim, records show.
Bail for Sumling was set Saturday at $750,000, meaning he must post $75,000 to be released while the case is pending. He is next due in court June 13.
Rivera's bail and court date were not immediately available.
If convicted of the most severe charges, each faces up to 30 years in prison, plus a possible additional 15 years because a firearm was used in the offense, according to state law.
