COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – One teenager faces felony charges in connection with a deadly shooting earlier this week.
Prosecutors have charged Isaiah Jenkins, 16, with two counts of first-degree murder, unlawful possession of a stolen firearm and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. His bond is set at $5 million in the case, per Illinois court records.
The shooting happened around 7 p.m. Monday in a neighborhood on North Seminary Street, near the Collinsville Police Department. Police say Vaeden Hawkes, 19, died from his injuries.
