Unlawful use of weapon is a $50 fine.

A 70-year-old South Elgin man was cited after he fired a shot in the air to stop a 16-year-old boy later charged with multiple vehicle burglaries, police said.

Police responded about 4:47 a.m. Monday to the 1100 block of Fairfax Lane for a report of gunshots and found the two men fighting in the street in a struggle over a gun, Sgt. Mike Doty said. A police officer kicked the gun "out of the hands of both individuals and the fight was broken up," he said.
