US: Man charged with shooting at mosque during service

August 14, 2012

A 51-year-old man was charged with shooting at a mosque he lives near in north suburban Morton Grove, according to authorities.

Police confiscated a “high-velocity air rifle” from the home of David Conrad, who lives just east of the mosque. He was charged with three counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm and one count of criminal damage to property, all felonies. He’s scheduled for a bond hearing on Monday.

Members of the Morton Grove mosque said someone took several shots with an air rifle Friday night at the building’s outer wall. According to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, two air rifle shots were fired at the outer brick wall of the Muslim Education Center mosque, 8613 Menard Ave., damaging it.

No comment on his religious affiliations. Who wants to bet that he’s an atheist?
