Man fires gunshots near Tri-North Middle School during domestic quarrel as students are about to be released

A  22-year-old man was arrested Wednesday for criminal recklessness after  firing several shots near Tri-North Middle School as students were about  to load onto buses, according to the Bloomington Police Department.  Tri-North was then put on lockdown for 30 minutes until police declared  the area was safe.

The  22-year-old man told police his romantic partner of 4 years called him  and accused him of cheating as he was arrived at an address in the 1600  block of North Willis. He told police the woman had a metal rod, which  he believe she would use to vandalize his blue Chevy Cobalt, so he  pulled out a handgun and fired several rounds in her direction.

Police  investigating in the vicinity of 1400 North Willis, the location of  Western Skateland, which is directly across the street from Tri-North  Middle School, found three spent 9mm shell casings. Investigators noted  the location of the casings makes it appear the suspect was in a moving  vehicle when firing the shots. Police recovered a Glock 19 handgun from  the shooting suspect, who is being charged with criminal recklessness, a  level 5 felony, and was placed under arrest.

The  shooting occurred just before 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.  Students were just about to be released from Tri-North, and buses were  lined up and parents were waiting to pick up their kids.

There were no injuries from the incident.
