Joliet, IL – A urgent manhunt following two separate shooting incidents has resulted in the deaths of seven individuals. 

The Joliet Police Department, spearheading the investigation, has identified the alleged suspect as 23-year-old Romeo Nance. Nance is believed to be driving a red Toyota Camry with the license plate Q730412. Nance is considered armed and dangerous, and authorities are advising the public to remain vigilant and report any sightings immediately to law enforcement.
