Police looking for second man charged with shooting at Harvard home

A 30-year-old Harvard man charged earlier this month with shooting a gun in Harvard and hitting a home is now the second person charged in the incident, according to court records and the Harvard Police Department.

An active arrest warrant was issued for Andrew Calderon IV, of the 300 block of Marengo Road, on Dec. 1, the day after Juan Carlos Popoca, of the 1400 block of 9th Street, was arrested and charged in the incident.

Calderon is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm at a building, knowing the building was occupied, and possession of ammunition as a felon. Popoca is charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm at a building.

The most serious charge – aggravated discharge of a firearm – is a class 1 felony typically punishable by 4 to 15 years in prison.

Harvard police have not located Calderon, Deputy Police Chief Tyson Bauman said.

Popoca remained at the McHenry County Jail as of Tuesday morning in lieu of $75,000 bond, the jail log shows.

Calderon was separately charged last week with failing to register an address change as a registered sex offender with the Harvard police, according to the criminal complaint, which alleges Calderon had not returned to his Marengo Road home since Nov. 30.

Police responded about 6:30 p.m. Nov. 29 to the 700 block of West Metzen Street after numerous calls about multiple shots being fired, according to a Harvard police news release about that incident. Multiple gunshots struck a Harvard home but nobody inside was hurt by gunfire.

The two men are accused of firing shots at the home from two different firearms, Bauman said.

The investigation is ongoing, he said.
