The bond for a 19-year-old man charged in connection with the shooting at a Walmart in suburban Darien on Dec. 4 has been set at $3 million.
Authorities say Bradley Morris, of Downers Grove, was taken into custody Friday with the help of the U.S. Marshalls Service, according to a release. He has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery with a firearm, and unlawful use of a weapon, all of which are felonies.
Just after 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Darien police responded to an active shooter situation at a Walmart store in the 2100 block of 75th Street.
Police said the shooting unfolded when two men started arguing at the Subway restaurant inside the store, and escalated when one of the men pulled out a gun and began firing, hitting the other man in the shoulder.
The victim was transported to Good Samaritan hospital by the Westmont Fire Department, and no other customers in the store were harmed.
One shopper said he was in the electronics department when he heard 3 to 4 gunshots before people began “running and screaming.”
"I was shocked," he said, adding that he was able to leave the store through an emergency exit.
