Cooper, 40, was arrested after the incident which occurred in the 7300 block of South Wood Street as investigators were there to serve a warrant at about 1 p.m., Friday, prosecutors said in bond court.
“I didn’t know y’all was the police. I wouldn’t have shot,” Cooper told officers while being handcuffed, according to police reports.
He faces five felony counts of attempted murder and five counts of aggravated discharge of a fire arm.
According to prosecutors, Cooper has six prior felony convictions, including attempted murder of a police officer in 1995. He was sentenced to 12 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the crime.
His next court date is Feb. 6.
