One victim upgraded to serious

By Tyler Vincent

The condition of a 21-year-old Kishwaukee Community College student, one of three shooting victims at a party near NIU early Sunday morning, has been upgraded from critical to serious.

A Kishwaukee Community Hospital spokeswoman said the victim’s condition was upgraded sometime during the day Tuesday. Conditions of 19-year-old Kishwaukee College student Karlton Dorsey, who is being treated for a gunshot wound to the abdomen at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, and a 25-year-old male at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove remain critical.

Police are not releasing the names of the victims and would not confirm Dorsey as one of the victim’s names.

The shootings occurred about 1:37 a.m. Sunday when an argument broke out during a party at 885 Regent Drive Apt. 103. Two suspects left the apartment, at which point one of them began firing a gun.

DeKalb police describe the first suspect as a tall, thinly-built black male who was wearing a two-tone green leather jacket with some black material worn off the shoulders. The suspect also was wearing a multi-colored sweater with a matching knit cap.

The second suspect is described as a tall, thinly-built black male who was wearing a powder blue outfit with a powder blue baseball cap with a snakeskin brim. Police said he may have two empty teardrop tattoos under his right eye.

Investigators believe the suspects left the scene in two separate vehicles — a dark-colored sport-utility vehicle and an olive green Navigator SUV with front and taillight damage. The men are believed to have attended the Shyne and Twista concert at the Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. 2nd St., on Saturday night, and were seen at Harold’s Chicken, 901 Lucinda Ave., before heading to the scene of the shooting.
