The Winnebago County Coroner’s Office has released the name of the 16-year-old killed in an accidental shooting on Fairview Avenue on Saturday.
Darion Gordon was found dead of a single gunshot wound to the head in the 1100 block of Fairview Avenue.
Detectives say no foul play is suspected, and the shooting appears to have been an accident.
However, the Winnebago County State’s Attorney did bring charges of Aggravated Unlawful Use of Weapons against another 16-year-old who was with the victim at the time of the shooting.
The identity of the juvenile has not been released due to his age. He is currently being held in the Winnebago County Juvenile Detention Center.
