A Will County judge has set a $1 million bond for the driver involved in a Wednesday evening crash that led to a pursuit ending in gunfire in Naperville.

According to Carole Cheney, spokeswoman for the Will County State's Attorney's Office, Johnathan Mosely, 27, is charged with four counts of aggravated assault and one count each of aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle, unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle, aggravated battery, attempted fleeing or eluding a peace officer and aggravated fleeing and eluding a peace officer.


Police say Mosley has recent addresses in Bolingbrook and Aurora.

Police say they were investigating a fatal crash involving a motorcycle at 5:12 p.m. Wednesday near 1188 W. Boughton Road when Mosley, driving a Hyundai Elantra stolen from Aurora, steered around emergency vehicles and struck a Bolingbrook police officer.

Authorities say Mosley then fled with officers in pursuit, eventually catching up with him at Naper Boulevard and Washington Street in Naperville. Shots were fired by officers while they were attempting to stop the vehicle, authorities said.

Lt. Anthony Columbus said the injured officer was released from the hospital late Wednesday.

The suspect, he said, was treated for at least one gunshot wound and released from the hospital. He is now in custody in Will County.

Columbus said the case remains under investigation by the Will/Grundy Major Crimes Task Force, in conjunction with the Will County State's Attorney's Office.
