Three shootings; four arrested

News

DANVILLE — Four men are accused of a shooting spree which started Monday afternoon. Investigators say shots were fired on Franklin, Fairchild and South streets.

No one was hit, but a house and several cars were. Police say shots were fired again Tuesday afternoon causing the high school to be put on lockdown.

Investigators believe they’ve caught those responsible for Monday night’s crimes.

Police were first called around noon Monday. Someone’s house or apartment building on East Fairchild was hit by gunfire. Officials say the shooter was firing out of a car.

Later, just before 10 pm, three people told officers they were leaving a house on South Street when they were shot at by two men. 

Around 1 am Tuesday, bullets hit a car and witnesses say they saw two other cars taking off. Investigators say whatever’s driving the violence could be coming from somewhere else.

“People are more transient today, 22-years into my law enforcement career, than they were when I started back in 1994,” says Police Commander Jane McFadden. “You knew everybody, and now we have people that are mobile. We have people that come here from Indianapolis, Chicago and St. Louis.”

Two suspects are Jodavius Jones, of Danville, and Brandon Dallas-Hagan, of Indianapolis. Police believe they shot at the group on South Street.

Christopher McClendon, of Chicago, is accused of the drive-by shooting on Fairchild.

Police say Dustin Noel, of Danville, shot at cars. All four have been arrested.

The investigation isn’t over yet. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
