DeKalb Police arrest juvenile in Russell Road shooting
A juvenile has been arrested by DeKalb Police, after their investigation into a shooting last week in the 800 block of Russell Road.
Police were called to that location around 4:30 p.m. last Thursday, after getting a call of shots being fired; officers couldn’t find a victim or suspect, but did recover shell casings from the scene.
Investigators found that an argument had broken out between several persons; one pulled out a handgun and started firing at some of the others…and then fled the scene, running south on Russell.
Police were able to find the victims, all of them juveniles and none of them injured. A warrant was issued the next day for the 14-year-old perp…who was taken into custody on Wednesday, and sent to the Kane County Juvenile Detention Center.
The investigation is continuing, and police believe this case may be liked to other similar incidents in DeKalb. Anyone with information on this or other related cases should call police, contact CrimeStoppers, or use the I Watch app on your smart phone.
