Bond was set Monday for two men charged with firing shots from a vehicle Saturday afternoon as they drove through Grant Park.

David Calvin, 20, and Kevin Billingslea, 27, each face one felony count of aggravated discharge of a firearm at an occupied vehicle, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

Calvin was ordered held on a $150,000 bond, and Billingslea was ordered held on a $100,000 bond, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers heard shots fired about 2 p.m. in the area of East Balbo Avenue and South Columbus Drive and determined that people inside two vehicles were shooting at each other, police said. No injuries were reported.

The men sped away from the scene of the shooting in a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was later stopped on the Eisenhower Expressway at California Avenue, police said. They were subsequently arrested and a gun and shell casings were found inside the vehicle.

A third person was taken into custody Saturday after the shooting, but that person has been released without charges, police said.

Calvin and Billingslea, who both live in the 4500 block of North Clarendon, are both scheduled to appear in court March 25.
