Auroran indicted in Warrenville shooting

WHEATON — A 21-year-old Aurora man has been indicted on charges he fired a gun during a November scuffle in Warrenville.

Adrian Ramos, of the 300 block of North Union Street, was arrested in the early morning hours of Nov. 3 after Warrenville Police responded to a shots fired call and stopped a vehicle carrying Ramos and a second man, David Vargas, also of Aurora, police said. Ramos had a .22-caliber long rifle pistol with him at the time of the stop, according to authorities.

A DuPage County grand jury indicted Ramos this week on single counts of reckless discharge of a firearm and possession of a firearm without a firearm owners identification card, court records show. Ramos is accused of firing three shots while wrestling over the gun with Vargas. No one was injured in the shooting.

Ramos returns to court Jan. 14 when he is expected to be arraigned. Vargas was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a firearm without a FOID card, police said.

Ramos had been placed on conditional discharge — a less strict form of probation — in April after pleading to guilty to a reduced battery charge tied to an incident at his home. Aurora police arrested Ramos in March 2011 on charges of resisting a peace officer, aggravated battery of a police officer and consumption of alcohol by a minor, reports show.
