CENTRALIA, IL — Bail has been set at $250,000 each for two Centralia men charged in Clinton County Court in connection with a double shooting last week on the west side of Centralia.
Dalton Garrison, 19, was charged Wednesday with three Class X felony counts of aggravated battery through the discharge of a firearm, Class 2 felony arson to property, and Class 4 felony obstruction of justice.
18-year-old Trevin Hendricks was charged Thursday with the same offenses for the same double shooting incident at an apartment in the 1700 block of West McCord.
According to police, a 29-year-old Centralia man was shot twice in the incident, while a 30-year-old Peoria man was shot once. Both victims were ultimately transported to a St. Louis area hospital for treatment. One has since been released.
Special conditions set in the cases against Garrison and Hendricks — whether the defendants make bail or not — include no contact with the victims Ricardo Little, Andre Johnson or Albert Hendricks. Hendricks was reportedly the owner of the white Mercury SUV that witnesses said fled the scene. Police later found the vehicle burnt in what they say was likely an attempt to destroy evidence.
Trevin Hendricks is next due in court April 1 for a preliminary hearing and a first appearance with a private attorney. Garrison is next due in court April 8 for a preliminary hearing and a first appearance with his court appointed attorney.
