Authorities: Argument over salad led to shooting in Antioch
A 22-year-old Antioch man shot his mother's boyfriend Wednesday morning during an argument over a salad, officials said Thursday.
Rondell Jamison faces six felony charges, including aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated domestic battery, stemming from the shooting.
On Thursday morning, a Lake County judge set Jamison's bail at $1 million, meaning he would need to post $100,000 cash to go free while his case is pending.
Jim Moran, an Antioch village spokesman, said investigators believe the argument broke out about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in an apartment on the north side of the village. It's believed Jamison took a salad he wasn't supposed to, leading to the altercation, officials said.
After the shooting, Jamison's mother and the victim began driving to a hospital, but on the way they were involved in a crash along Deep Lake Road near Lake Villa, Moran said.
The shooting victim was rushed from the crash scene to a hospital and is expected to survive, officials said.
Moran said Antioch police went to the apartment on the 300 block of Donin Drive, where Jamison surrendered. Officers later found a gun believed to have been used in the shooting.
Jamison is next due in court Dec. 13.
