A juvenile has been charged with murder and a second suspect is being sought after an 18-year-old man was fatally shot outside an apartment building in Waukegan.
An autopsy performed Friday on Kyron Goode, 18, of Waukegan, showed he died from a gunshot wound to the chest, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek.
The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 2:33 p.m. Thursday to the 500 block of South Genesee Street for a report of a shooting.
Officers arrived and located Goode, who was reported to have been shot in the face and chest, at the Barwell Manor Apartments.
The 18-year-old man had been outside when the shooting occurred, according to a police report.
Officers found Goode inside an apartment when they arrived.
Paramedics arrived and transported Goode to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.
He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.
Evidence markers were seen placed over numerous spent shell casings in the roadway on South Avenue.
Some of the apartments in the complex had also been struck by the gunfire, the report said.
Investigators located several leads and identified two suspects during their investigation, according to Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Scott Chastain.
A suspect vehicle was also identified. It was later spotted traveling northbound through Zion toward Wisconsin.
The Zion Police Department and the Kenosha, Wisconsin Police Department assisted in arresting a 17-year-old Waukegan boy for outstanding warrants in Kenosha, Chastain said.
The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office issued an extradition warrant for the juvenile and he was charged with first-degree murder. It is unclear yet whether he is being charged as an adult.
A second suspect, who detectives have identified, is still being sought by the Waukegan Police Department.
