A man has been charged with attempted murder for firing shots at a Cook County sheriff’s officer who was responding to a domestic disturbance at the suspect’s south suburban home.

Bond was set at $300,000 for Deandre Barnes, who appeared in court Monday in Markham, according to the sheriff’s office.

He allegedly fired shots at a sheriff’s officer just after 1 p.m. Sunday near the entrance to his home in the 1400 block of Diplomat Lane in Ford Heights, according to the sheriff’s office.

The officer was responding to a domestic disturbance when the shots were fired. The officer was not hit and did not return fire, the sheriff’s office said. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Barnes “surrendered to police after officers made multiple commands for him to come out of the residence,” a statement from police said. He was taken into custody without further incident, and a handgun was recovered.

Barnes’ next court appearance was scheduled for Sept. 6.
