Joliet Police are hoping the public can help them identify the occupants of a red SUV, possibly a Lincoln Navigator, who were involved in a Jan. 22 shooting during which one man was killed and another injured.
Police said they were called to 205 Hunter around 6:17 a.m. Jan. 22 for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived, they found a man later identified as Christopher Perry Jr., 24, who had been shot and was lying unresponsive near a vehicle in front of the home. They also found a 23-year-old man lying nearby who also was shot.
The two men were transported to Presence St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet. Perry was pronounced dead at the hospital at 7:18 p.m. that day. The other man was listed in stable condition as of Jan. 23.
Police said the shooting was gang-related. Witnesses at the scene said they saw a person in the passenger side of the SUV reach over the driver and fire shots at the two men.
Those with any information are asked to call Joliet Police Investigations, 815-724-3020, or Crimestoppers of Will County, 1-800-323-6784.
