Belleville News-Democrat (Sunday) - - Local - BY JOSEPH BUSTOS jbus­tos@bnd.com

Belleville Po­lice are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion for a shoot­ing where a man was hit in the shoul­der Thurs­day night as two ve­hi­cles drove east on Illi­nois 15.

In a post on Face­book, Belleville Po­lice said the vic­tim was driv­ing home shortly be­fore 10:30 p.m. on Illi­nois 15 from an event in East St. Louis. When the vic­tim was be­tween Pocket Road and Race­horse Drive he no­ticed a black Dodge Charger drive up quickly be­hind him.

The Charger tried to drive along­side the vic­tim as they drove east on Illi­nois 15. The vic­tim be­lieves he was in the area near De­mazenod Drive when he was shot in the shoul­der, po­lice said.

The vic­tim then re­turned fire as both ve­hi­cles con­tin­ued go­ing east on Illi­nois 15, po­lice said.

The vic­tim ex­ited Illi­nois 15 at Old St. Louis Road and called po­lice. He was taken to a St. Louis hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.

Belleville de­tec­tives ask that any­one with in­for­ma­tion call 618-234-1212 or Crimestop­pers at 866-371-8477.
