BOLINGBROOOK – A man was shot during a fight Sunday morning.

Shortly after 9 a.m., police were called to the 300 block of South Schmidt Road where the two men were fighting and witnesses saw a gun, according to Lt. Mike Rompa.

The combatants fled to separate vehicles and drove west on Lily Cache Lane.

"As they approached Orchard, gunshots were fired from one vehicle," Rompa said.

At 9:12 a.m., police found a black Mercury SUV at Hywood Lane and Delaware Circle with four people inside, Rompa said. An 18-year-old man was taken to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital with a gunshot wound to his lower right leg. His injury is not considered life-threatening, Rompa said. The other occupants were questioned by police.

At 9:15 a.m., police stopped a black Cadillac Escalade at Dalhart Avenue and Arlington Drive in Romeoville. Rolando Ibarra, 36, of the 300 block of Dupage Drive in Bolingbrook, was identified as the shooter, Rompa said. A .380-caliber handgun was also recovered by police.

Ibarra was arrested and booked into the Will County jail on charges of aggravated battery, aggravated assault, aggravated discharge of a firearm, reckless discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon.
