Large police presence at scene


VERMILION COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — There is a heavy police presence in Tilton.

It is happening on 14th Street between Dean Street and Greenwood Cemetery Road. A neighbor said she heard one gunshot. She said she went to get her mail and she saw an officer by a car, which she said had four people in it.

She said the officer yelled for everyone to get out of the area, so she took off; that is when she heard the gunshot.

Vermilion County Sheriff’s Office, Illinois State Police and Tilton Police are all investigating. They blocked off a big portion of the road.

An officer said Carle and OSF ambulances were both on-scene.

Multiple neighbors said the car belongs to someone who lives just one street down.
