NORTH AURORA — Bond was set at $500,000 Thursday for a 22-year-old Aurora man in connection with a March 1 North Aurora shooting and home invasion.
Quintin D. Mullen, who is in custody in the Kane County jail, has been charged with home invasion, armed robbery, armed violence, aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated assault by the Kane County state’s attorney office.
Mullen, of the 1700 block of Felten Road in Aurora, must pay $50,000 in cash to be released from jail before his trial.
According to North Aurora police, on the afternoon of March 1, Mullen and another man busted in the door of a duplex in the 200 block of Laurel Drive. While the other man held residents at gunpoint, Mullen went upstairs and took a safe. The other man fired three shots at the residents’ dog, who later died, and both men fled the duplex, police said.
Mullen was arrested Wednesday afternoon by Aurora police, who turned him over to North Aurora police.
Police believe the incident was drug-related and not a random attack.
North Aurora police are still searching for the other suspect, who is described as a black man in his 20s with dreadlocks to his shoulders wearing a black hoodie and dark pants.
North Aurora police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the department at 630-897-8705, ext. 610. To leave an anonymous tip, call 630-897-8705 and choose option 3.
