Arrest made in Kewanee shooting incident

Police in Kewanee say they’ve arrested a man in connection with a shooting incident earlier this week at a home there.

Police say in a news release 19-year-old Jacques Nile was arrested early Wednesday morning, and faces multiple Class-X felony home invasion charges, and a count of Possession of a Weapon by a Felon. He’s being held in the Henry County Jail in Cambridge on $750,000 bond and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for July eighth.

Police were called to a home around 1am Monday in the one-hundred block of North Vine Street, east of downtown Kewanee. A 25-year-old male suffered gunshot wounds, and a 26-year-old female suffered blunt force injuries.

Officials say both have since been released from the hospital.

Authorities say their investigation into the shooting continues, and that additional charges are pending.
