A North Chicago man has been charged in connection with a shooting last month that left three people injured outside a bar in unincorporated Lake Bluff.
Saladine A. McKinney, 23, faces one count of aggravated battery with a firearm, a Class X felony, two counts of aggravated unlawful discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, and one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, a Class 3 felony, according to a statement from the Lake County sheriff’s office.
About 1:30 a.m. Dec. 25, an argument between several people inside Nardo’s BBQ Bar and Grill, 5 N. Skokie Highway, moved from the bar to the parking lot, the sheriff’s office said. Once outside, shots were fired and three people were left wounded.
Two males and a female were taken to area hospitals for their injuries, which were not thought to be life-threatening, police said. Their ages were not disclosed.
As of Monday, the sheriff’s office said McKinney, a street-gang member, was one of multiple persons of interest in the shooting.
On Tuesday, McKinney, of the 1700 block of 16th Street in North Chicago, was ordered held at the Lake County Jail on a $250,000 bond, police said. He is next scheduled to appear in court Jan. 28.
