BLOOMINGTON — The man Bloomington police have been looking for since early December in a gunfire incident on the city's south side is in custody, the department said on Friday.

Bobby James, 35, who was wanted in McLean County on multiple charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm, possession of a weapon by a felon and reckless discharge of a firearm, was arrested in Chicago by members of the Chicago Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Task Force. 

James is accused of firing shots Thanksgiving night inside the Main Street Convenience store at 1909 S. Main St.; two vehicles also were struck by bullets, said police.

James is currently awaiting extradition to McLean County.

Police were called to the store about 7:09 p.m. that night and found evidence of shots fired inside the business and at the vehicles in the parking lot.

No one was hurt.
