On Sunday, July 17, DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Roselle Chief of Police Steve Herron announced that bond had been denied for a Roselle man charged with shooting an innocent woman in the head early Saturday morning at a Roselle restaurant.
Jamie Quijano, 22, of the 200 block of Walter Drive in Roselle appeared in bond court where Judge Susan Alvarado denied bond. Quijano has been charged with one count of attempted first degree murder (Class X Felony), aggravated battery with a firearm (Class X Felony) and one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm (Class 1 Felony).
On Saturday, July 16 at approximately 12:29 a.m., Roselle police officers responded to a call of shots fired at Bulldog Ale House located at 394 Irving Park Road. Upon their arrival, officers found a female in her 20’s with a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was immediately transported to a local hospital for medical attention.
Following an investigation into the shooting, it is alleged that an employee and a male patron, later identified as Quijano were arguing. It is alleged that following the argument, Quijano began walking toward the exit and then turned around and began firing into the restaurant. It is alleged Quijano fired his pistol 18 times with one shot striking the victim in her head. It is further alleged that after the shooting, Quijano fled the scene on foot. Quijano was taken into custody a short time later at his home. Officers recovered a pistol and a magazine on the couch of the residence as well as two live 9 mm rounds, one in Quijano’s pants pocket and another in a satchel he had been carrying.
“Judge Alvarado’s denial of bond this morning sends the message that senseless, unprovoked acts of violence as alleged in this case will most certainly not be tolerated in DuPage County,” Berlin said.
Quijano’s next court appearance is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 15, for arraignment in front of Judge Margaret O’Connell. If found guilty, Quijano faces between 31 years to life in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt.
