Hoffman Estates man, 19, arrested in Schaumburg shooting
A Hoffman Estates man wanted in connection with a shooting last month in the parking lot of a Schaumburg strip mall turned himself into police Friday, authorities say.
Jacob M. Taylor, 19, of the 1900 block of Brookside Lane, is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm stemming from the shooting that left a man hospitalized with bullet wounds to both legs, police announced Saturday.
The arrest follows an investigation launched Sept, 8 after police were called to a parking lot in the 2300 block of West Bode Road at 11:44 a.m. to investigate a report of shots fired.
Arriving officers found the 26-year-old victim in the parking lot suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital for treatment.
Detectives determined the victim was involved in a dispute with the suspect, leading to the shooting, police said.
Taylor appeared in Cook County bond court Saturday, when a judge ordered him held in the county jail on $750,000 bail. He's scheduled to return to court Oct. 25.
The charge against him is a Class 1 felony punishable by four to 15 years in prison, if he's convicted.
