In connection with a fatal shooting that occurred at the former Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale in 2021, a guy from Chicago has been prosecuted. Travis Peery, 24, of the 8900 block of Dorchester Avenue, is accused of having an illegal weapon in his possession on one count. On February 6, 2021, a shooting occurred during a gathering in the resort’s hotel.
Police discovered numerous victims. Before the cops came, other people had already taken James McGill to the hospital. At the hospital, he passed away. An MPA30T handgun with an extended magazine was among the weapons that the police discovered outside the hotel in the snow, according to a press release from the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office. According to the authorities, Peery was seen clutching the MPA30T in a YouTube video taken at the hotel that evening.
The claim is that they discovered his DNA on the weapon. The charge was brought on February 15. In Nevada’s Las Vegas, Peery was detained. On March 24, he was sent to Illinois through extradition. His bond was set at $300,000, therefore in order to be released pending trial, he would have to post $30,000 in cash.
Judge Ann Celine O’Hallaren Walsh rejected a motion to reduce Peery’s bail on Thursday. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives analyzed DNA located on the trigger, within the trigger guard, on the external pistol grip, exterior of the ammo magazine, and feed lips of the magazine, according to court documents.
David Chenier’s obituary and funeral arrangements will be released by the family at a later date.
