Following the investigation, 18-year-old Drayk Compton of Litchfield was taken into custody for Aggravated Assault. Once in custody the police found pornographic pictures on his phone of one or more individuals under the age of 17, resulting in a Possession of Child Pornography charge as well.


In the following days, there was evidence for Compton to be charged with Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm, which is a Class X Felony. 


Compton is being held at Montgomery County Jail with bond set at $150,000.
