A man who allegedly fired a handgun near a group of people early Friday morning was charged with a felony on Saturday, Shiloh police said.
Shiloh Police Department said 46-year-old Kenneth C. Clark was charged with one count of reckless discharge of a firearm after the case was reviewed by the St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Police said they were called to a Shiloh home in the 200 block of South 2nd Street after 3:30 a.m. Friday for a report of a gunshot being fired. No one was hit by the gunfire, and no injuries were reported.
Police said a subject in the home, identified as Clark, had allegedly shot a handgun “in the vicinity of a group of individuals outside his residence.”
