Officers investigate after man hurt in shooting


KANKAKEE COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — The Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office said one person was hurt during a Tuesday night shooting.

Officers were called to the SS Friendly Mart in Pembroke Township at 9:30 p.m. in reference to two subjects with guns. When they got there, they found evidence of a shooting in the parking lot. Around the same time, deputies were told about a person at the Dollar General in Sun River terrace that had been shot.

Deputies responded to the call and found 29-year-old Randle C.M. Haymore of Chicago. He was taken to the hospital to get treated for a gunshot wound.

Officers said Haymore had not been forthcoming with information that could help them with their investigation.

“Unfortunately, when victims do not fully cooperated in the investigation of a shooting, it is difficult for detectives to identify the offender(s), which in turn allows these individuals to remain on the streets,” said Sheriff Mike Downey.

At this time, deputies said it appears the two incidents are related. Investigators are processing evidence and interviewing witnesses.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (815) 932-7463 {815-93-CRIME} where they can remain anonymous and receive cash rewards for information leading to the arrest of the responsible suspects.
