A man has been charged with firing shots at three men in a vehicle earlier this morning in west suburban Aurora.

Andre Norman, 21, of the 900 block of Plum Street, faces two counts each of aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, according to a statement from Aurora police. One of the aggravated discharge counts is a Class X felony, which calls for enhanced sentencing upon conviction.

About midnight Aug. 9, Norman fired several shots towards three men — ages 22, 24 and 51 — who were in a vehicle near Flagg and North Fourth streets, police said.

The investigation revealed Norman had an ongoing dispute with the 24-year-old and, minutes before the shooting, had stopped by the man’s house in a vehicle driven by a 21-year-old Aurora woman, police said.

Norman displayed a gun and threatened to shoot the man, and as he and the woman drove away, the three men got into one of their vehicle and followed, police said. Once near Flagg and Fourth, Norman got out of his vehicle and opened fire.

None of the three men were shot, but several bullets struck their vehicle, police said. A home in the 100 block of North Fourth Street was also hit by a single round.

Officers arrested the woman about an hour after the shooting, but she was later released without being charged, police said. Norman was arrested without incident Wednesday in the 400 block of North Eola Road.
