A leader of the Morton Grove mosque that was damaged by air rifle shots on Friday said he thinks the man being held should be charged with a hate crime.
David Conrad, 51, lives just east of the mosque and faces three counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, a class X felony, and one count of criminal damage to property, a class 4 felony, Morton Grove police said in an early Sunday press release.
The mosque’s president, Mohammad Aleemuddin, said he thinks Conrad should also be charged with a hate crime.
“It should be. It is a hate crime,” he said.
