Charges Filed In Lakeview House Party Shooting

Charges have been filed in connection with a shooting at a late-night house party in the 2900 block of North Sheffield on Sunday.

Warren | Cook County Sheriff
24-year-old James C. Warren IV of the Auburn Gresham neighborhood is charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to court records.

A judge this afternoon set his bail at $800,000.

Witnesses told police that Warren was asked to leave a party that was being held in an apartment at 2943 North Sheffield around 1:15 a.m. yesterday.

Warren left, returned with a gun, and shot a 21-year-old man in the legs before bystanders wrestled the weapon away and held Warren for police, according to records.

The victim was reported in serious condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center yesterday.

Warren was treated and released from Presence St. Joseph’s Hospital after receiving a head injury during a fight for control of the gun, police said.

Two shell casings were recovered at the scene along with one live round that witnesses removed from the weapon before cops arrived, according to a source.

The shooting was Lakeview's first of the year.

Warren is due back in court on April 24.
