NORMAL – Normal Police have arrested an 18-year old local man suspected of trying to kill another teenager by shooting him several times earlier this week in an apartment complex in northwest Normal.
Police obtained a warrant and arrested Omarr Parks-Bullock of Normal on Friday. He’s jailed on $750,000 bond, meaning he has to come up with $75,000 cash to be released.
Parks-Bullock is accused of firing multiple shots, wounding a teenaged boy in Building 4 of Northbrook Estates at 710 West Orlando in Normal.
Normal Police Chief Rick Bleichner said the victim suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
Parks-Bullock is charged with two counts each of attempted murder and aggravated battery by discharging a firearm. He’s also charged with six counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm in an occupied building, reckless discharge of a firearm, and not having a valid firearm owners identification card.
Police are still investigating, but the chief said authorities are not searching for other suspects.
