Suspect in Illinois mass shooting dies in Texas – Police

A person who shot and killed eight people in Joliet, Illinois, has died after a fight with the police.

The police in Joliet said that a 23-year-old man named Romeo Nance is thought to have killed himself after an argument near Natalia, Texas.

He is believed to have killed eight people at different places in Joliet.

Police found seven victims in two houses close to each other on Monday. The eighth person was found on Sunday.

The names of the seven people who were found dead on Monday have not been made public yet.

The police found some dead bodies and are now looking for the person they think did it. They say that the person could have a weapon and is very dangerous.

The Joliet police department announced that Mr. Nance was found by US Marshals near Natalia at around 8:30 pm on Monday.

At that time, it was said that Nance used a gun to kill himself after a fight with Texas police.

The Will County Coroner’s Office will figure out who the victims are and how they died. This investigation is still ongoing.

Natalia is over 1,000 miles away from Joliet if you drive. It is just outside of San Antonio. It would take at least 18 hours to drive from one place to the other.

It is not known why he went to Texas or if he knows anyone there.

Before, the chief of police in Joliet, Bill Evans, said at a news conference that police were informed at 12:04 pm on Monday that some people had been found shot and killed.

When the police got to West Acres Road, they found seven dead people. Five people were in one house, and two were in the other house, according to Will County Sheriff’s deputy chief Dan Jungles. It is thought that they were all from the same family.

It’s not clear why the attack happened, but the person who did it is thought to have known the people they hurt.

“I have been a policeman for 25 years. “Jungles said, “This is the worst crime scene I have ever been involved with. ”

BeforeNance was found in Texas, investigators thought he was driving a red Toyota Camry and asked anyone who knew about the attack 40 miles (64km) south-west of Chicago to get in touch with them.

Authorities were told about two shootings that happened in Joliet at different places the day before.

They said a car with the same license plate as the one connected to finding the seven bodies on Monday was seen in both places.

One of the shootings led to the death of a 28-year-old man. He was shot in the head, according to officials.

The police found out that the man’s name is Toyosi Bakare. He is from Nigeria and has been living in the US for three years.

The police think that Mr. Bakare was not related to the other victims, but he knew Mr.

The police said that a 42-year-old man got shot in the leg earlier that day, but his injuries are not life-threatening.

A video shows the person who got hurt talking to the driver of a red Camry car. The car drives away and then comes back, and then you can hear gunshots.
