Mattoon man arrested in connection with shooting incidents

A Mattoon man is due in court later this month to face charges in connection with a series of shootings at occupied homes last month.

Thirty seven year-old Kevin Morlan will be in court Dec. 26 to face a charge of aggravated discharge of a firearm.

Mattoon Police said that there were five separate incidents in November where someone shot at five homes while the residents were inside, four of which occurred in Mattoon.

Morlan was arrested on Monday night in connection to those shootings.  He is also facing a charge of possession of methamphetamine and was wanted on other warrants.
