|Three Accused of Galesburg Parking Lot Shooting Incident Make Court Appearances
|Three of the four Peoria men allegedly involved in a shooting at a local grocery store were in Knox County Court for their first appearances with a public defender. 18-year olds Markell Clark and Detrick Harris and 17-year old Anthony Williams were in court Friday, where preliminary hearings and bond reduction hearings were scheduled for later this month.
The three were allegedly involved in a shooting and a home invasion that took place earlier this week. According to Galesburg Police reports, witnesses told police they saw four suspects fleeing a Cedar Street residence on foot and police believe a shots fire call from the Henderson and Main Street Aldi grocery store just after the home invasion involved the same four suspects.
Clark and Harris each face two Class-X felony counts of Home Invasion and Armed Robbery and also a Class 1 Felony charge of Residential Burglary. They will be back in Knox County Court on the 23rd of June to among other items, try and have their bond lowered from the current $200,000.
Williams faces a Class-X Felony count of Armed Robbery, a Class 1 Felony count of Residential Burglary, and felony weapons charges. He will also be back in court on June 23rd, for a preliminary hearing and will attempt to lower his bond which has been set at $350,000.
The other 18-year old allegedly involved in the home invasion and the shooting, Fayez Samhan, will be in court for his first appearance with a public defender on June 24th.
