A suspect is in custody following a deadly shooting at a WeatherTech facility in Bolingbrook, Illinois, on Saturday morning, according to the Bolingbrook Police Department.
Charles C. McKnight Jr is 27 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
A deadly shooting at a WeatherTech facility in Illinois on Saturday occurred after a temporary employee robbed two other workers and was confronted, police said.
Police in the village of Bolingbrook, a Chicago suburb, were called on a report of a shooting at the facility around 6:25 a.m. and found three people shot, police said.
One victim died, another was in critical condition, and the third was treated at a hospital and released, Police Chief Mike Rompa said.
The suspect fled when police arrived but were arrested later that morning, police said. He was identified as Charles C. McKnight Jr., 27.
Police believe the shooting happened after McKnight, a temporary hire at the facility, robbed two co-workers at gunpoint during an overnight shift, and was then confronted about the robbery, Rompa said.
“When confronted an argument ensued and the offender pulled out a handgun and shot three co-workers,” he said. “This shooting does not appear to be premeditated.”
A watch and wallet were taken in the robbery, police said. Police said they found a handgun and the items that were stolen when McKnight was arrested.
