Two men have been charged with murder after prosecutors say one of them fatally shot a 21-year-old man at a bowling alley in Waukegan and then went to Zion and shot the victim’s relative.

The Waukegan Police Department responded around 1:09 a.m. Monday to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan for a report of a person shot who arrived in the emergency room.

Mieshon Harvey, 21, of Waukegan, was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek.

Officers spoke with people at the hospital and learned the shooting occurred in the parking lot of Bowlero, 631 Lakehurst Road in Waukegan.

Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Scott Chastain said officers located and secured the crime scene.

The Waukegan Police Department’s Major Crime Scene Unit responded to process the evidence at the scene.

Harvey tried to stop the fight when he and Josiah Mars, 24, of Zion, got into an altercation, Chastain said.

Derrick Wells, 32, of Zion, gave Mars a handgun and Mars shot Harvey in the chest, Chastain said.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Jeffrey Facklam said Wells is known to carry the gun and has handed it off to people before.

Both Mars and Wells fled the scene but were later apprehended by the Waukegan Police Department.

Facklam said Mars then went to a location in Zion where he shot a person related to Harvey.

Chastain said Mars was armed with a semi-automatic handgun when he was arrested that matched the caliber of the weapon used in the murder.

The gun will be sent to the crime lab for further analysis.

Mars was charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Wells was charged with three counts of murder, aggravated domestic battery and two counts of domestic battery.

Facklam said Mars has not yet been charged in the Zion shooting but charges are anticipated soon.

Both men appeared in bond court Wednesday morning and Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered the two held on $5 million bonds.
