A 25-year-old Racine man faces four felony charges, including attempted first-degree intentional homicide, after a March 5 fight on Cleveland Avenue.

The attempted homicide charge could land Marsean L. Herrington in prison for 60 years. Herrington, who is expected back in Racine County Circuit Court on a return on warrant Monday, is also charged with felony counts of bail jumping, possession of a firearm by a felon and first degree recklessly endangering safety.

The three felonies carry a total additional fine of $60,000 and 28 years, six months in prison. Herrington also is charged with
misdemeanor bail jumping, which carries a fine of $10,000 and nine months in jail.

According to the criminal complaint:
A resident told police he heard a commotion in the 1900 block of Cleveland Avenue and observed a group of males fighting. A group of males drove off, and as they passed another vehicle, a man later identified as Herrington fired several gunshots.

Officers recovered six .45 caliber gun casings from the scene.

Court records indicate the defendant was free on bond in a separate case. One of the conditions of bond was that he was not to commit any new criminal offenses.
