CRYSTAL LAKE – A 23-year-old Tennessee man is being held in McHenry County Jail without bond after police said he fired several shots Monday during an argument with a family member.

Cody D. Bingham of Rogersville is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, as well as misdemeanor assault and criminal damage to property, Crystal Lake Deputy Chief Tom Kotlowski said.

A family member of Bingham’s called 911 about 12:45 a.m. to report a domestic violence incident, police said. As police were arriving, Bingham discharged several rounds inside and outside the home and fled on foot, Kotlowski said. Police were able to locate Bingham quickly in the Westwood Court area and take him into custody, Kotlowski said. Bingham was unarmed at the time of his arrest, and police located the handgun near the residence.

No one was injured, police said. They continue to investigate the incident.

If convicted of the felony charge, Bingham could face up to 15 years in prison.
