2 teens among 3 charged with murder in Carpentersville shooting
Joel Leitner, 22, Phillip Walker and Devon Coleman, both 17, were charged in connection with the death of Jordan Durr.
Three people, including two teenage boys, are facing murder charges in connection with the fatal shooting of a man Monday in downstate Carpentersville.
Joel Leitner, 22, Phillip Walker and Devon Coleman, both 17, are each charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted armed robbery, the Kane County state’s attorney’s office said in a statement.
The teens are being prosecuted as adults, the state’s attorney’s office said.
The trio was in vehicle about 9 p.m. at 9 Oxford Drive when Jordan Durr, 27, walked up to the vehicle and someone inside opened fire, striking him in the chest, prosecutors said. Durr ran before collapsing near a dumpster, and the trio stepped out of the car and went through his clothes.
Walker, of Carpentersville, Coleman, of East Dundee, and Leitner, of Tennessee, were taken into custody a short time later, prosecutors said. Durr later died at a hospital.
Coleman and Walker are each being held at the Kane County Jail on $500,000 bail while Leitner’s bail was set at $750,000, the state’s attorney’s office said. They’re due back in court June 19.
