CHICAGO (CBS) – Police say yesterday’s deadly shooting in Morris Illinois appears to have been completely random.
Police say Beverley Lambert, 25, was picking up her 2-year-old child from a babysitter when a 16-year-old armed with a gun shot her twice in the back of the head.
Investigators say that suspect was in the area trying to get a ride when someone told him to leave. A short time later, he started shooting.
They say he then stole lambert’s car, prompting a widespread manhunt.
A license plate reader later helped police track the accused gunman down in Joliet.
“I’ve never heard of an offender in Grundy County committing a murder at age 16 in the history of the county,” said Grundy County States Attorney Josh Helland. “This just does not happen here.”
Prosecutors say the suspect has a criminal history.
He’s now charged with six counts of murder.
