Another shooting victim improves

By Tyler Vincent

Nineteen-year-old shooting victim Karlton Dorsey was upgraded to serious condition Friday at Loyola University Medical Center.

The Kishwaukee College student, one of three victims shot at a party at 885 Regent Drive Apt. 103 on Jan. 28, was transferred to Loyola last week where he remained in critical condition. Police have yet to confirm Dorsey’s name.

A 21-year-old Kishwaukee College student taken to Kishwaukee Community Hospital after the shooting was released, according to a hospital spokeswoman, although she would not expand on details. The condition of the third shooting victim, a 25-year-old Chicago man at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, was not released by the hospital.

Police still are searching for three suspects in relation to the shooting who they believed were in attendance at the Shyne and Twista concert at the Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. 2nd St., and were seen at Harold’s Chicken, 901 Lucinda Ave., before the shooting took place. Police believe the main suspect was a tall, heavyset black male who was wearing a powder-blue puffy coat, a matching baseball hat and a long white-gold chain around his neck the night of the shooting.

The second suspect is described as a tall, thinly-built black man who was wearing a two-tone, mostly green with some black, leather jacket and a multi-colored, predominately cream and burnt orange, Coogi brand sweater with matching cap.

The third suspect is described as a tall, thinly-built black male whom investigators believe was wearing a powder blue outfit with a matching blue baseball hat with snakeskin brim. Police say he may have two empty teardrop tattoos under his right eye.

The shooting took place at 1:37 a.m. after an argument broke out at the party. One of the participants in the argument left the party and began shooting. Police believe the suspects fled the scene in two separate vehicles, an olive green Navigator SUV and a dark-colored SUV or van of unknown make.
