Daniel Gerger, age 33 of Forest Park met for bond hearing at Rolling Meadows Cook County Circuit Court on Thursday morning, January 27, 2022 facing two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm after he allegedly shot two male victims at the Stadium Sports Club & Pizza, 4015 Algonquin Road in Rolling Meadows. The two Class X felonies were approved by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Police say that Gerger shot two men during a fight in the bar area of Stadium Sports Club & Pizza at about 11:40 p.m. Monday, January 24, 2022. A 38-year-old Des Plaines man was shot in the abdomen, and was transported by Rolling Meadows Fire Department paramedics to Level 1 Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where he was listed in critical condition. The second gunshot victim is a 26-year-old Elgin man, who was shot in the leg. A tourniquet was applied to his leg before paramedics arrived. He was transported by Rolling Meadows Fire Department paramedics to Northwest Community Hospital where he was treated and released from the hospital.
Gerger suffered an injury to his hand during the incident, but was not transported to the hospital by paramedics.
One gun was recovered, and is believed to be the only gun involved at the crime scene.
Bail was set at $200,000. Gerger was ordered not to contact either of the two victims, and must stay away from the Stadium Sports Club & Pizza. He was also ordered to surrender his firearm(s) and Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card to the Rolling Meadows Police Department.
