An 18-year-old west suburban man and two teens were charged Wednesday with firing shots at a home before crashing a car trying to get away early Tuesday.

At least one person inside a vehicle opened fire on a home in the 2800 block of Frances Lane in west suburban Montgomery about 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, according to Montgomery police.

Residents of the home then chased the shooter's vehicle to Route 31 and Route 30, where the vehicles crashed, police said.

The shooter's vehicle kept going, but around Baseline and Albright roads, it was pulled over by police and the three were taken into custody, according to police.

Saul Muro, 18, of the 0-100 block of Durango in Boulder Hill was charged two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm and one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, police said Wednesday.

A 17-year-old Aurora boy was charged as a juvenile with two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm; and a 17-year-old Boulder Hill boy was charged with unlawful contact with a gang member, a violation of a juvenile probation warrant, police said.

The Aurora boy was being held at the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center, while the Boulder Hill teen was sent to the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles. Muro was being held in the Kane County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.

Police said they recovered a weapon thought to have been used in the shooting, and recovered shell casings outside the home.

No one was reported injured, and the investigation is continuing, police said.
