Geneva man charged after shooting gun inside house

A west suburban man is facing several charges after he fired a shot inside his Geneva home during an argument with family members Sunday night.

Andrew Deliman, 41, was charged with one felony count of reckless discharge of a firearm and misdemeanor counts of domestic battery and disorderly conduct, according to a statement from the Kane County sheriff’s office.

About 6:45 p.m., deputies responded to a domestic dispute in the 0N600 block of Keegan Drive in Geneva, police said. While they were on their way, they were told that someone had fired a gun inside the home.

When the deputies arrived, everyone except Deliman had left the home, police said. Deputies contacted him, but Deliman refused to leave the home. Eventually deputies went inside and took him into custody.

Deliman got into an argument with his sister about a wrestling match he had with her 15-year-old son and during the argument he pushed her, police said. Everyone else who was in the home went outside, and when he was alone, Deliman fired a shot. He did not aim the gun at anyone.

He was taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva for an evaluation, police said, then charged and brought to the Kane County Adult Justice Center.
