Police recovered a van Friday that was seen fleeing from the scene of the fatal  shooting.

Waukegan police were called to the restaurant at 3140 Belvidere Rd. in Waukegan about 6 p.m. Thursday after an altercation and shooting in the restaurant parking lot. Shawntrell Hayes, 29, was fatally wounded in the shooting, police said.

Officers were canvassing businesses in the area for videotape.

    • concerned citizen

      I wondered if they were fighting over a Chef’s Choice Burger®, but probably not. Just another case of thinnin’ the herd!!

      • concerned citizen

        No, actually, there’s no evidence or inference that his victims were Klan members. So, in that case, I’d call it a reprehensible and unnecessary act. But thanks for asking!

      • NWA

        So, what would you call what the White guy who used a hammer on his victims, culling the clan?


      • NWA

        Wrong clan concerned “whatever.” I’m speaking of the clan y’alls momma comes from. Not the klan yo mommas baby daddy come from.
