A $100,000 cash bond was set for a man accused of attempted homicide after he shot a gun at two people.

Dajon Daniel, 19, of Racine, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday with two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, repeater.

If convicted of both charges, Daniel faces up to 132 years in prison. Both victims were not injured during the shooting.

According to the criminal complaint, Daniel fired a gun two to five times at two people outside a residence in the 4000 block of Marquette Drive on Nov. 9.

When he returned, he turned slightly, pulled out a semi-automatic handgun out and started shooting at the car.

Racine County Court Commissioner Alice Rudebusch set a preliminary hearing for 8:30 a.m. Dec. 8 for Daniel, who is currently being held on a probation hold.
