|Traffic Stop Leads To Drive-by Retaliation Arrests
|Arrests have been made in connection with a retaliatory incident in the death of 38 year old Terrell Allen.
The now deceased Allen was allegedly killed August 27th of last year in a drive by incident by 31 year old Jereme Carter and 33 year old Barry Fletcher.
Just after 2 a.m. the following day, Carter was the victim of an attempted drive-by shooting that according to reports, left bullet holes in a vehicle.
No arrests were made in the retaliation until last Sunday where five men were arrested in the 2100 block of US 34 according to Knox County Sheriff's Deputies.
Authorities approached the vehicle after citing it for speeding, when an odor of burnt cannabis prompted a search of the vehicle.
A loaded semi automatic handgun and .22 caliber fully loaded revolver were discovered beneath the passenger seat.
Among the five arrests was 35 year old Calvin Allen who is being held on charges of possession of a weapon by a felon and a Warren County warrant for the retaliatory incident against Carter.
Calvin Allen is being charged in Warren County on two individual counts of attempted first degree murder.
The following day, officers located license plates linked to 29 year old Galesburg resident Senaca Horton who was arrested in connection with the retaliatory incident as well.
Horton is also being charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder.
He will appear in Warren County Court on Tuesday morning. Allen has no court date scheduled in Warren County pending his Knox County appearance for the gun related charges.
