The three victims were visiting a friend in the 400 block of Strong Avenue around 5:30 p.m., but as soon as they got out of their car, they were ambushed. Police said someone walked up and opened fire.
Two of them – 17-year-old Tariq Purnell and 30-year-old Keon Kelley – were killed. An 18-year-old man who was wounded was airlifted to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.
Kelley was a father of four.
“Keon, he was a good person, too. He got four kids; four beautiful kids. Don’t nobody deserve to die like this; nobody,” family friend Sylvania Shade said.
Purnell was a junior at Joliet High School. His family lives down the street from the shooting. His older sister said she heard eight gunshots Tuesday night.READ MORE: Frank Pietrangelo, Hero Of 1991 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Says He Was Among Those Sexually Abused By Hockey Coach Tom 'Chico' Adrahtas
“He was fun, loving, outgoing. He loved his nieces,” she said. “He was my little baby. He was a good kid, despite anything that goes on. No mama needs to bury their child,” she said.
