Illinois Gunman Kills 8 People Before Fatally Shooting Himself

HeadlineJan 23, 2024

In Illinois, at least eight people were found fatally shot at three separate locations in the city of Joliet Sunday and Monday. The suspected gunman fled to Texas, where police said he shot himself after a confrontation with law enforcement Monday evening. One of the victims was a 28-year-old Nigerian immigrant who’d been living in the U.S. for about three years. There’s been at least two dozen mass shootings in the U.S. just in the first three weeks of 2024, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
