A 37-year-old Woodridge man is headed to prison for six years after entering a guilty plea to a nonfatal Naperville shooting.

Trinny Thomas, 37, of the 7000 block of Woodworth Avenue, pleaded guilty Monday to one felony count of aggravated discharge of a firearm and was sentenced by Judge Liam Brennan.

Thomas and another man, Christopher Partin, 31, of the 1600 block of Country Lakes Drive in Naperville, faced multiple charges stemming from their June 15, 2018, arrest.

Police said they responded to a fight in progress at 3:41 p.m. June 15 on the 500 block of Fessler Avenue. Upon arrival, officers learned shots had been fired and a person was injured. The victim, whose arm was grazed by a bullet, was treated at the scene and released.

Partin remains charged with unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, reckless discharge of a firearm, obstructing justice, resisting arrest and assault. Partin is held on $50,000 bail and will next be in court April 10 before Judge George Bakalis.
