Fatal Bolingbrook, Ill. shooting death of Devon D. Davis – Obituary
Tragic events unfolded in Bolingbrook, Illinois, as a shelter-in-place mandate, imposed on local schools, has been revoked, and authorities have apprehended a suspect following a distressing shooting incident that occurred on Monday afternoon.
The distressing episode summoned Bolingbrook police to a residence nestled within the 300-block of Walnut Circle, just shy of 2 p.m.
Their prompt response came in response to an alarming report of a gunshot victim. Tragically, within the confines of the dwelling, they discovered a wounded man who was swiftly transported to a nearby medical facility. Regrettably, despite their best efforts, he succumbed to his injuries.
The unfortunate victim was identified as 33-year-old Devon D. Davis, as confirmed by the Bolingbrook Police Department.
Preliminary investigations suggest that the shooting may have been a byproduct of a familial dispute and does not appear to be a random act of violence. Pertinently, law enforcement has disclosed that the alleged assailant fled the scene on foot prior to their arrival.
In a subsequent development, the Darien Police Department took to Twitter a little past 4 p.m., conveying that the individual suspected of perpetrating the shooting had been apprehended within Will County.
At present, authorities have refrained from disclosing further particulars regarding the arrest.
In parallel, Valley View School District enacted a shelter-in-place directive at approximately 2:45 p.m., which was subsequently lifted around 4 p.m., allowing for the commencement of the school dismissal process. Parents and guardians have been alerted to the possibility of bus delays of up to 90 minutes as a consequence of these unsettling events.
