A Waukegan man has been charged with murder after a man in his 20s and a second man were both shot, one of them fatally, at Stretch’s Sports Bar and Grill in Waukegan on Christmas Eve.
The Waukegan Police Department responded around 2:20 a.m. Saturday to Stretch’s Sports Bar and Grill, located at 200 North Green Bay Road in Waukegan, for a call of a shooting.
Officers located a victim with a gunshot wound and began lifesaving measures, according to Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Brian Mullen.
Fire department radio traffic indicated the victim was unresponsive and officers were performing CPR on him.
The Waukegan Fire Department transported the man to Vista Medical Center East where he died from his injuries.
He is described as a male in his 20s from Zion, Mullen said.
A second victim in the shooting had self-transported to Vista Medical Center East before officers arrived.
That victim, a male in his 20s from Waukegan, sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
The Waukegan Police Department Criminal Investigations Division and Major Crime Scene Unit responded to the scene to investigate.
Investigators had a person of interest in custody following the shooting, Mullen said.
Court records show Robert B. Sudduth, 30, of Waukegan, was charged Monday with one count of first-degree murder and one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
Sudduth was transported to the Lake County Jail Monday morning.
He is being held on a $2 million bond. He would need to post $200,000 cash in order to be released.
Mullen said investigators are not seeking any other suspects in the case.
Sudduth is scheduled to appear in court for a status of preliminary hearing on January 3.
The identity of the deceased victim will be released by the Lake County Coroner’s Office once the next of kin notifications have been made and an autopsy has been completed.
