Galesburg Police Searching For Two Suspects in Teen’s Murder
Galesburg police say they're still searching for two men in connection with last weekend's fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy.
The (Galesburg) Register-Mail reports police are looking for two 18-year-olds — one on first-degree murder and firearms charges and the other for possession of a firearm by a felon.
