Joliet police charge man in weekend shooting

JOLIET – Police say a parolee shot a man outside his house early Sunday.

Deputy Chief Al Roechner said the incident occurred about 1:47 a.m. in the 1100 block of Magnolia Avenue. A 20-year-old man told investigators he was sitting in his car talking on the phone when Delvin L. Arrington came up and shot him through the window, according to Roechner.

The victim was taken to Silver Cross Hospital with gunshot wounds to his arm and stomach and a graze wound to his side. His injuries are not considered life-threatening, according to police reports.

Police found Arrington, 19, Sunday morning at his residence in the 200 block of Fairbanks Avenue. He was arrested on charges of aggravated battery and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

"The victim knew the man who shot him by a street nickname that we were able to link to Arrington, who was identified as the suspect," Roechner said.

The Department of Corrections reports Arrington has been on parole since May for aggravated battery and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon convictions from a 2012 incident in Will County.
