The man who allegedly raised a weapon at Oswego Police officers last month and was subsequently shot has been arrested and charged.

Oswego Police arrested Taylor Cano, 24, of the 100 block of Ashlawn, at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday after his release from an area hospital where he had been undergoing treatment.

Cano is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated unlawful use of weapon and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, according to Oswego Police spokeswoman Cathy Nevara. 

Cano will appear in Kendall County Court Friday morning for a bond hearing, Nevara said. 

Cano was shot by Oswego Police officers in the early morning hours of Saturday, Aug. 29 in the 100 block of Ashlawn. He had called police several times at about 12:15 a.m. stating there would be a "massacre" in Oswego, and that he would harm anyone who came to the home to help him, police have said.

When police arrived he allegedly refused to drop a rifle in his possession and raised it toward officers. He was then shot in the torso.

Nevara said more information will be available regarding the case after Cano's Friday bond hearing.
