KANKAKEE — An early Sunday morning shooting injured two men in the 1000 block of South Lincoln Avenue.
The two men, a 27-year-old from Richton Park and a 29-year-old from Bourbonnais, were sitting in a vehicle when police responded about 12:20 a.m.
Police found shell casings in an alleyway between Lincoln and South Poplar Avenue.
Both victims were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“It is not clear what they were doing in the alley,” Kankakee Police Chief Frank Kosman said. “The case is still under investigation.”
Kankakee police also are investigating a shooting that occurred about 6:45 p.m. Monday in the 300 block of South Evergreen Avenue.
The shooting took place about 15 minutes after a school safety meeting occurred at the Lincoln Cultural Center.
Police recovered shell casings from the scene. No injuries were reported.
