Arlington Heights police responded about 3:45 p.m. Friday, December 3, 2021 to a report of an incident involving Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm in the block of 1100 West Wing Street in Arlington Heights.

Three days later a male suspect was arrested and charged with Reckless Discharge of a Firearm.

The location of the arrest was not disclosed.

The incident allegedly occurred when the male suspect was picking up an item or items from the home on Wing Street, where he no longer resides. The suspect had left the scene before police responded to the call in the block of 1100 West Wing Street.




Police were working on information that a male/white in his 60s, wearing a black jacket and armed with a rifle was connected to the shot(s) fired scene on Wing Street.

The male/white subject was reported to have been driving a white 2016 Honda SUV.
