Bond was set at $500,000 on Saturday for the Zion man arrested in a barricade situation Friday near two Gurnee schools.
Kendrick Augillard, 34, was charged with home invasion, residential burglary, aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated cruelty to a companion animal, violation of an order of protection, and possession of a weapon without a firearm owner’s identification card.
Augillard visited the home of his ex-girlfriend in the 4400 block of Raven Court, according to Gurnee police and Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Ji Un Saw. He said the woman has an order of protection against Augillard, Saw said. The ex girlfriend was at the Waukegan Metra station at approximately 6:49 a.m. when Augillard arrived Friday at her home.
The ex-girlfriend’s sister and her two children were inside the residence when Augillard forced his way inside, Saw said. The sister and her two children, ages 6 and 10, hid inside a bathroom in the residence, according to Saw.
Augillard fired through the bathroom door. Police found six holes in the bathroom door, five spent shell casings, and a .38-caliber revolver inside the home, Saw said.
The sister was able to call 9-1-1.
Police found blood on the doorstep when they arrived, which belonged to the family dog, Saw said. Gurnee police said the dog was shot during the incident and transported to an area animal hospital.
Gurnee police said Augillard was aiming at the ex-girlfriend’s sister, but hit the dog instead.
Augillard barricaded himself inside the home and was taken into police custody around 10:15 a.m. Friday.
The woman and her children were evacuated by police. Augillard exited the residence himself after a friend of his went to the scene and contacted Augillard, police said.
Police also said more charges may be forthcoming as the investigation continues.
Augillard is in custody at Lake County Jail. He needs to post $50,000 to be released from custody, Judge Michael Betar said.
Gurnee District 56 elementary schools were put on lockdown Friday because of the barricade situation, as was Warren High School’s O’Plaine Campus.
