On Sunday, April 28th, at 7 p.m., officers located a truck matching the description of the suspect vehicle, near the intersection of Rockton Avenue and Auburn Street, and conducted a traffic stop.

The 17-year-old male driver was cited and released, and Carreno was arrested and charged with Aggravated Unlawful Use of Weapons, Possession of a Weapon by a Gang Member, and no FOID card.
Police believe Carreno and his accomplice were involved in the Friday night shooting.
He was taken to the Winnebago County jail.
