BREAKING: Shooting at off-campus apartment complex, suspect at large

Edwardsville Police responded to an off-campus shooting incident at The Reserve apartment complex on Halloween afternoon.

Police are searching for a man they believe shot a woman at The Reserve, an off-campus Edwardsville apartment complex, on Halloween afternoon.

SIUE e-lerts warned students that an off-campus shooting had occurred at 2:23 p.m., and later that the suspect had been last seen at the Moto Mart on Riverview across the river in Missouri.

Edwardsville Police Chief Jay Keeven confirmed that the victim was transported to a St. Louis-area hospital.

“The victim knew the suspect and we are waiting to speak with her,” he said. “At this point, we do not believe her injuries are life-threatening.”

He added that they believe the suspect was romantically involved with the victim, but there is minimal other information at this point. However, he said they do believe the suspect has fled the area. 

The suspect is described as a Black male with a thin build, wearing a gray sweatshirt and jeans. SIUE’s alert stated that his clothes may have blood on them.
