Police are seeking information in locating two “armed and extremely dangerous” offenders who both opened fire on an occupied car at a gas station in Wadsworth.
The shooting occurred during the early morning hours of March 6 in the 41400 block of North Green Bay Road in Wadsworth.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office detectives have since obtained arrest warrants for two offenders involved in the shooting.
The suspects are identified as Charles Brooks III, 41, of the 3600 block of 16th Street in Zion, and Carnell D. Taylor, 47, of the 2000 block of Joanna Avenue in Zion.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said that Brooks and Taylor both fired guns at an occupied vehicle in the parking lot of a gas station.
Nobody was struck or injured in the shooting.
Brooks fled eastbound on Route 173 in a white Chevrolet Impala following the incident and Taylor fled northbound on Green Bay Road in a blue Monte Carlo, which has doors that open vertically.
On Monday, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Brooks for aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, a Class 2 felony.
Detectives also obtained a warrant for Taylor for armed habitual criminal, a Class X felony, aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, a Class 2 felony.
A Lake County judge set bond on the warrants at $500,000.
Taylor is 6-foot-4, approximately 250 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Brooks is 5-foot-7, approximately 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
