Centralia man sentenced after plea in double shooting case

CENTRALIA, IL — A 20-year-old Centralia man was sentenced Wednesday to 30-months probation after he pleaded guilty in Clinton County Court to three of seven counts stemming from a double shooting incident earlier this year on Centralia’s west side. Trevin Hendricks was also fined $5,000 plus assessments; ordered to abstain from drugs and alcohol, submit to random testing; and have no contact with victims Ricardo Little and Andre Johnson.

He was arrested in March along with 20-year-old Dalton Garrison in connection with a shooting at an apartment in the 1700 block of West McCord in Centralia.

Albert Hendricks was reportedly the owner of the white Mercury SUV witnesses say fled the scene. Police later found that vehicle burnt in what they say was likely an attempt to destroy evidence. Both victims transported themselves to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia, one with two gunshot wounds and one. Both were ultimately transferred to St. Louis area hospitals for treatment.

Hendricks was originally charged with three Class X felonies for aggravated battery through the discharge of a firearm, Class 2 felony arson, two Class 3 felonies for aggravated battery and Class 4 obstruction of justice. He pleaded guilty Wednesday to the two aggravated battery charges and the obstruction charge in exchange for the other more serious charges being dismissed.

Garrison is charged with similar charges with the exception of the two Class 3 aggravated battery charges. He’s expected to enter into a plea agreement with the state next week.
