JUVENILE ARRESTED AFTER SHOOTING AT HARRISBURG HOME SUNDAY

HARRISBURG, IL — A juvenile was taken into custody following a weekend incident where he reportedly shot a gun at a home in Harrisburg.

Harrisburg Police say just before 3 Sunday afternoon, Saline County Central Dispatch received several 911 calls in regard to an incident that took place at the Harrisburg Township Park.

The initial caller reported that a male juvenile had displayed a gun to her son while at the park. Harrisburg officers arrived in the area moments later and began searching for the juvenile suspect.

At 3:04 p.m., another 911 came in with the caller reportedly hearing a gunshot somewhere behind IYC.

Officers located the victim and several witnesses and spoke with them. They identified a male juvenile suspect, whom they knew, by name. They confirmed that the suspect displayed the gun to them at the park and later followed them home, where he discharged a single round at the victim’s home.

While speaking with these witnesses, Saline County Central Dispatch received a third call reporting the male suspect was at an apartment complex on Marsh St.

Officers responded to the Marsh St. apartments and located the male juvenile suspect leaving an apartment. The male was detained, and a search of the apartment uncovered a loaded firearm and firearm ammunition, believed to be used in the incident.

The juvenile was arrested and later transferred to the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center in Benton.

No injuries were reported from the incident.
