ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) — Rockford, Illinois police say a search continues for the man charged in connection with the shooting deaths of three passengers on a party bus.
The Winnebago County coroner on Monday identified the victims of Saturday's shooting as 22-year-old Daijon Sistrunk, 24-year-old Martavies Blake, and 27-year-old Sean Anderson, all of Rockford.
The Rockford Police Department says Raheem D. King was on the bus with the victims at the time of the shooting. Police spokeswoman Laura Maher says an arrest warrant was issued for King by the Winnebago County State's Attorney's Office.
Maher says King boarded the bus with an assault-style rifle and shot the three men. Authorities say King is believed to be in possession of the rifle and is considered armed and dangerous.
Authorities say after the shooting, several people fled the vehicle on foot.
