KANKAKEE, IL — A wave of gunfire rattled the City of Kankakee last night, as three separate shootings unfolded, culminating in a high number of rounds being fired in the early hours, leaving two people injured.

According to City Police it began just before 10 pm in the 700 block of North Park Avenue, followed by another attack just after 12:30 am in the 1600 block of East Maple Street. A final round of gunfire shook the city at 2:15 am in the 700 block of North Harrison Avenue. The barrage of bullets left a trail of shock and disbelief in its wake.

Of particular concern is the intensity of gunfire, which punctuated the air and raised concerns about the city’s security. Police resources have been mobilized to investigate the three scenes thoroughly.

City Detectives Bureau has issued a plea for the public’s cooperation, urging anyone with information about the shootings to come forward. By reaching out to 815-933-0426, residents can play a vital role in helping law enforcement piece together the events of last night and bring the perpetrators to justice.
