Homer Glen, IL – A shooting incident in Homer Glen, Illinois, led to the arrest of 28-year-old Dominic A. Chiarelli, the Will County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday. The event unfolded on Thursday night when deputies responded to reports of a shooting in the 12000 Block of Longmeadow Lane.

According to the sheriff’s office, the 25-year-old male victim from Hickory Hills was involved in an argument inside a vehicle parked at Chiarelli’s residence. The altercation escalated, resulting in Chiarelli allegedly striking the victim with a pistol and shooting him once in the back. The victim, who sustained a non-life-threatening injury, sought help at a church parking lot near 167th Street and Wolf Road in Orland Park.
