Police in west suburban Aurora are seeking the public’s help in locating a man wanted for attempted murder and multiple other felonies in connection with a Friday domestic-related shooting.
Enrique B. Jaquez, 35, broke into a home in the 1800 block of Brighton Circle and shot a 40-year-old man in his side during a domestic-related incident, Aurora police said in a statement.
The man was taken to a hospital in Aurora in critical condition, police said.
Jaquez shot the man at his ex-girlfriend’s home. He originally knocked on the front door and when the woman answered, Jaquez forced his way inside and shot the other man, police said.
He then left the scene in an SUV which was later located by police in the 1900 block of Kevin Drive in neighboring Montgomery.
Jaquez, whose last known address is in the 300 block of Pearl Street in Montgomery, is a 5-foot-10, 220-pound Hispanic man with short, black hair and brown eyes.
He should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.
Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call Aurora police at (630) 256-5500 or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Jaquez’s arrest.
