2-Jan-18 The twelve people arrested after a gun discharged at a River North hotel had, collectively, 48 arrests, and that was before the December 24 incident.
A late-night party on the ninth floor of Homewood Suites on East Grand Avenue ended with shots fired, though no one was injured.
When police arrived at about 3:30 a.m., they found three handguns in room 918 and at least one bullet lodged in a wall.
Ten adults, all between the ages of 18 and 24, were arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Two minors, ages 16 and 17, were charged with criminal trespass. No one was charged with any gun-related crime.
The only adult of the group who did not have an arrest record was the host of the party, Terraniqua Snow, and she has one now. She was also charged with reckless conduct.
(Left) Snow, age 24, lives west of the Loop in the 4100 block of West Gladys Avenue. Most of the other adults arrested live nearby.
|21-year-old Teron Gulley-Clark (right) has been arrested 16 times in the past three years. Last July, he received a one-year prison sentence for unlawful use of a weapon but was paroled six weeks later.
Four of the adults have firearms convictions and a fifth is awaiting trial on gun charges. One is on parole.
Terrion Morris, age 23, has eleven arrests and, while still on probation for a narcotics conviction, received a one-year sentence for unlawful use of a weapon.
The adults charged in the December 24 incident will be in court on February 20.
