Joliet Double Shooting Leaves Second Slain in 2 Days

Two were shot Tuesday night and one is dead—so far.

A double shooting on Second Avenue has left at least one dead in the city's second gun attack in as many days.

Joliet police Detectives were heading over to the death scene on Second Avenue shortly before 8:30 p.m. A police source confirmed one was dead.

Just over 24 hours earlier, 18-year-old Tevin Bridges was gunned down in the Lois Place apartments. A Lois Place resident, Darrel Perkins, 53, was arrested and charged with Bridges' murder.

Witnesses said Bridges wanted to buy loose cigarettes from Perkins but advanced at him with balled fists when he heard the price was $1 for two smokes.
