Not smart to fire stolen gun
JOLIET — A 30-year-old man was arrested early Sunday after firing off a stolen gun at a house in the 1900 block of Great Ridge Drive, police said.
Cmdr. Al Roechner said police were called about 1 a.m. when gunfire was heard from the house, and when officers knocked on the door “the homeowner answered from a second-floor window and said he’d heard the shot.”
Roechner said Darren L. Wilson and another man then came outside, but Wilson refused to answer questions and tried to push past the officers.
Police found a 9-millimeter handgun hidden in the back yard that had been reported stolen in Ohio, Roechner said.
Wilson was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, reckless discharge of a firearm and unauthorized possession of a firearm, according to police.
