Kankakee Police Chief Larry Regnier tells the Daily-Journal "it's kind of a tit-for-tat situation," rival gangs shooting at each other. And another incident happened Wednesday.
Chief Regnier said the rival gang war's been going on since last fall.
Four shootings in Kankakee over the weekend resulted in one 18-year-old male being shot in the back. Two other shootings involved vehicles being shot up.
And Wednesday's shooting wasn't too far away from Kankakee Junior High School.
No one was injured, but a victim's car was hit several times on South Hillcrest Avenue. Police said the driver refused to cooperate or identify any possible suspects. Wednesday's shooting temporarily put the junior high school on lockdown.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Kankakee Police Department's detective bureau at 815-933-0426 or Crime Stoppers at 815-932-7463.
