KANE COUNTY—The Kane County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident in which subjects traveling in a car used a BB pistol to shoot at subjects in another car.

The incident took place at approximately 3:15 p.m. on Monday in the area of Route 30 and Route 47 near Sugar Grove. The victim followed the offending vehicle into South Mill Creek. By the time deputies were able to catch up to the vehicle, it had stopped at the intersection of South Mill Creek Drive and Fabyan Parkway in unincorporated Geneva.

Deputies at that time were able to take the three subjects inside the vehicle—Hector Rubio, 18, of the 200 block of Bluegrass Parkway in Oswego, Ill., Michael Thompson, 20, of the first block of Oakwood Drive in Oswego, and Elle Fowler, 18, of the 3100 block of Thunderbird Court in Aurora—into custody. Deputies also recovered an air soft pistol that closely resembled a handgun.

All three subjects were charged with reckless conduct, a misdemeanor.
Due to the nature of the call, Geneva schools were placed on lockdown until the incident was resolved.
