An 18-year-old Joliet man was booked into the Will County Jail on Friday in connection with a March shooting, according to jail records.
About 4 a.m. Friday, Demetrius A. Coleman was taken to the jail, but was then released about 10 a.m. the same day.
Coleman faces a charge of aggravated discharge of a firearm for an incident that occurred on March 10, according to records.
Joliet police Sgt. Christopher Botzum said Coleman was arrested by his department in March as a minor. Botzum said he could not give out details of the arrest because of state laws concerning minors.
“I would be violating the state statute. By doing so I would identify a juvenile’s arrest record,” Botzum said.
