Bond has been set at $1 million for the man who allegedly shot at Oswego Police late last month and was then shot by officers.

Taylor Cano, 24, appeared in Kendall County bond court Friday morning where Judge John McAdams set bond with 10 percent to apply. 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. 

Oswego Police Friday also released a few more details from the early morning of Aug. 29, including that Cano allegedly fired at officers before being shot by police in the torso. 

According to Nevara, Cano called police shortly after midnight saying he was going to shoot everyone at a party taking place down the street from where he was staying in the 100 block of Ashlawn Avenue.

During the course of the investigation it was discovered Cano believed a motorcycle gang had surrounded his home, and he felt as if he were going to die that evening, police said. He allegedly told police he planned on "drawing headlines" to his murder by shooting people at the nearby party. 

When they arrive officers found Cano walking toward the party. When stopped by police, he turned toward them and fired one shot, police said.  Officers then returned fire, hitting him in the torso. 

Police said they believe Cano would have shot several people at the party if he had not been stopped. Police also said they could find no evidence that anyone at the party had been in contact with Cano that evening.

Police also revealed they had previous contact with Cano on Aug. 12 when they found him walking along Route 25 near Glendale Avenue. Cano yelled for police to kill him and was holding what appeared to be a wooden spear, police said. Police were able to subdue him at that time and he was taken to the hospital for evaluation.  

Cano will next appear in court Sept. 28.
