Arrests made in Saturday’s South Beloit shooting; 1 dead, 1 brain-dead, 1 in serious condition


South Beloit Police have announced two arrests and the identities of the victims in Saturday’s shooting in South Beloit.

Investigators say three men were shot just before 2 p.m. on Saturday on South Lincoln Street and Center Street, one block south of Shirland Avenue.

South Beloit Police say the 22-year-old Stephon Gander, 21-year-old Kyle Haynes, and 19-year-old Zach Fosberg were shot by two men around the age of 18.

Investigators believe the five men had a dispute when shots rang out. The suspects then fled in a red car.  Police say witnesses identified the suspects and the victims were the intended target.

Fosberg was shot in the upper chest and was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Gander was taken to the hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. He was later pronounced to be brain dead and is currently on life-support, awaiting organ donation.

Haynes was shot in the leg and abdomen and is currently listed in critical condition.

Police say an off-duty South Beloit Police Officer heard gun-shots from his home and responded calling first responders to the 100 S Lincoln Street area.

Witnesses provided the names of the man who shot the three and the man who accompanied the suspected gunman.

Around 3:30 p.m. two suspects – Logan Wunder, 18, of South Beloit, and an unidentified 17-year-old juvenile male – turned themselves in to the South Beloit Police Department.  Those suspects were then sent to the Winnebago County Sheriffs Department for questioning.

Wunder is charged with 1 count of First Degree Murder, 1 Count of Attempted Murder, and 1 count of Aggravated Battery with a Firearm.

The 17-year-old juvenile was charged with a pending criminal case not related to the shooting.

Further charges are pending.

The Winnebago County Sheriffs Department is investigating.
