AND MORE: Even More Charges Filed Against Woman Accused In Bizarre Lincoln Park Shooting Case

The woman who allegedly fired off several rounds during an altercation on a busy Lincoln Park street in October is now facing even more felony charges.

A grand jury has now returned eight counts against Jennifer C. Stegall of Broadview: Two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm and six counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

The strange case has grown increasingly serious for Stegall, who was originally charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and then found herself released from custody less than 8 hours after the incident, which can be seen on YouTube.

Community members who saw video of the incident questioned the seemingly lenient charge and prosecutors filed a single count of aggravated discharge of a firearm on October 28.

Now facing eight serious counts, Stegall, 32, is due back in court on New Year’s Eve.
