DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Lombard Chief of Police Roy Newton announced today that bond has been set for a Warrenville man accused of firing six times into a Lombard residence. Brian Redmond, 31, of the 28000 block of Ferry Road, appeared at a bond hearing this morning where Judge Brian Telander set bond at $100,000 with 10% to apply. The State had asked for a bond of $2 million with 10% to apply. Redmond has been charged with one count of Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm (Class 1 Felony) and one count of Obstructing Justice (Class 4 Felony).
On December 2, 2022, officers with the Lombard Police Department were dispatched to a residence on North Joyce Road for a report of a domestic dispute. Upon their arrival, officers spoke with occupants of the home. It is alleged that earlier that day Redmond was at the home and was asked to leave. It is alleged that when asked to leave, Redmond refused and once outside the residence told one of the occupants “You know I’ll kill ya, right?” and told another occupant “Watch what I do – you know I’ll shoot you, right?” before leaving the scene. It is further alleged that at approximately 6:58 p.m., Redmond returned to the home and fired six shots into an upstairs bedroom window. An investigation led by the Lombard Police Department led to Redmond who was taken into custody from his home at approximately 1:30 a.m. the following day without incident.
“The type of violent behavior alleged against Mr. Redmond will not be tolerated in DuPage County and will be met with the full force and effect of the law,” Berlin said. “Thankfully, no one in the residence was injured as a result of this alleged behavior. I commend the Lombard Police Department for their outstanding work in the quick identification and apprehension of Mr. Redmond. I thank the DuPage County MERIT Forensic Unit and SWAT Team for their work on this case. I also thank Assistant State’s Attorney Jaclyn McAndrew for her efforts in securing strong charges against this defendant.”
“This was great police work by our responding officers and investigations unit,” Newton said. “We thank members of the MERIT Forensic Unit and SWAT Team for all of their assistance.”
Redmond’s next court appearance is scheduled for arraignment on January 10, 2023, in front of Judge Brian Telander.
Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
