(Woodstock, IL) A man wanted in a McHenry County shootout last summer, has been arrested. Deontae Wade of Zion was announced as a suspect shortly after the August 2021 incident at Route 31 and Bull Valley Road. Wade was nearly apprehended in Waukegan the month after the shooting, but was able to escape as police tried to take him into custody. The 26-year-old was arrested this week, and was sent to the McHenry County Jail where he faces charges of attempted murder as well as unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a weapon by a felon and more. Bond was set at 750-thousand-dollars. Wade is due in court again on Friday. The shooting remains under investigation.
