Three men and a teen are charged following a gang-related shooting incident Wednesday afternoon in northwest suburban Mount Prospect.
About 4:51 p.m., a 15-year-old riding in a silver vehicle fired multiple shots at three rival gang members in the 1200 block of Boxwood Drive, according to a statement from Mount Prospect police.
No one was hit by the gunfire, police said. The vehicle fled, but was later stopped in the 200 block of McHenry Road in Wheeling.
The teen was inside, as were Juan Salinas, Edgar Gonzalez and Rodrigo Acosta-Caballero, police said. They were taken into custody, and the handgun used in the incident was found inside.
All four are self-admitted gang members, and police believe the shooting incident was also gang-related, the statement said.
The 15-year-old boy was charged as a juvenile with aggravated discharge of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, aggravated assault and mob action, police said. His name was not released because of his age.
Salinas, 23, of the 700 block of Dover Place in Wheeling, appeared in bond court Friday where he was held on a $50,000 bond, police said. Gonzalez, 23, of the 800 block of McHenry Road in Wheeling; and Acosta-Caballero, 24, of the 200 block of 7th Street in Wheeling were both held on a $60,000 bond.
All three men are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 6 at the Rolling Meadows Courthouse.
