KANKAKEE — Andre T. Lee was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Great Lakes Region Task Force in Chicago Thursday afternoon.
The 20-year-old Lee is accused of gunning down Terrell Love, of Pembroke Township, on July 24. The shooting occurred in the 300 block of North Evergreen Avenue at 6 p.m.
Love was found lying on the ground. He was taken to Amita Health St. Mary’s Hospital, where the 27-year-old Love was pronounced dead. The preliminary cause of death is multiple gunshot wounds, according to Kankakee County Coroner Bob Gessner.
Kankakee Police Chief Frank Kosman told the Daily Journal he was notified Lee had been apprehended at 2 p.m. Thursday.
A warrant was issued last week for Lee’s arrest.
A judge set his bond at $1 million.
Lee was on parole after serving about two years in prison on a weapons arrest from November 2017.
About two hours after Love was shot, officers were dispatched to the same block for a report of shots fired.
Shell casings from a semi-automatic firearm were recovered.
Kosman said the investigation continues.
Investigators also are looking into two shots fired incidents that occurred July 26 within six blocks of one another.
The first one occurred at 2:27 a.m. in the 700 block of South Gordon Avenue.
The house also caught fire after an accelerant was thrown at it. No one was injured in the fire, according to the Kankakee Fire Department.
At 2:31 a.m., officers were called to the 400 block of South Lincoln Avenue for shots fired. A vehicle was hit by gunfire.
