By Tyler Vincent

A 25-year-old Chicago man, one of three victims in the Regent Drive apartment shooting Jan. 28, has been released from Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

“He was released about a week and a half ago,” said DeKalb Police Chief Bill Feithen. “He’s out and about now.”

The man was the second of the three victims to be released. A 21-year-old Kishwaukee Community College student, who initially was treated at Kishwaukee Community Hospital, was transferred to Evanston-Northwestern Hospital to begin rehabilitation over the weekend of Feb. 3.

The third victim, a 19-year-old Kishwaukee student, remains at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, identified by a hospital spokeswoman as Karlton Dorsey. He remains in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

The shootings occurred at 1:37 a.m. Jan. 28 at 885 Regent Drive Apt. 103, where gunmen who previously had been involved an argument at a party fired at people before fleeing the scene.

Police still are searching for three suspects, including a primary suspect described as a tall, heavy-set black male who was wearing a powder blue puffy coat and matching baseball cap the night of the shootings.

The second suspect is described as a tall, thinly-built black male who was wearing a two-tone, mostly green jacket and a cream and orange Coogi sweater with matching cap. The third suspect is described as a tall, thinly-built black male who may have two empty teardrop tattoos under his right eye. He reportedly was wearing a powder blue outfit with a matching blue baseball cap the night of the shooting.

Police believe the suspects attended a Shyne and Twista concert at the Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. 2nd St., and later were at Harold’s Chicken, 901 Lucinda Ave., before going to the party where the shootings took place.
