The attorney for one of the men charged with the April 5 shooting at 1009 Aspen Court has introduced a motion to suppress the search of the defendant’s residence.

Former NIU student Mark Orozco, 24, appeared in court via closed-circuit television Wednesday morning for a status hearing. Attorney William Gibbs filed the motion to suppress the search of Orozco’s apartment.

Orozco, along with co-defendant Richard Van Arsdale III, 21, have been charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm, armed violence and unlawful delivery of cannabis. Orozco is also charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm.

Orozco is scheduled to appear in court next Nov. 16.
