Charges have been announced months after a fatal shooting at a public park in Rockford.
Rockford police announced Jamie Pearson, 31, Christopher Jackson, 30, Davon Lewis, 31, and Shyron Henderson, 26, have all been charged with first-degree murder.
The fatal shooting happened in the early hours of July 23 near the Twin Shelters at Sinnissippi Park following an after-hours party.
Officers found a 27-year-old man and a 28-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds when officers arrived on scene.
The 27-year-old man died at the park while the 28-year-old man died at the hospital, police said. The victim's names still have not been released. Two other people were shot, but their injuries were non-life threatening.
The four suspects were identified with the help of the police department's gang unit.
