Charles Rachel

Court documents says, a man named Charles Rachel, 42, is now facing multiple charges in connection with a shooting that occurred last week in the 3000 block of McHenry Avenue.

Records indicate that on Thursday, Rachel was involved in a verbal argument with a group of residents outside an apartment building on McHenry Avenue.

Court docs allege witnesses reported seeing Rachel walking away from the building before approaching an unknown individual sitting in the driver’s seat of a Honda sedan. Allegedly, Rachel requested a firearm from the man, who then handed him a semi-automatic rifle.

Rachel subsequently returned to the building, specifically the second floor, and discharged 20 rounds of .223 caliber ammunition into one of the apartment rooms and the laundry room.
