Rockford Police ask for public's help finding bus shooter


The suspect wanted in a deadly bus rampage is still on the loose. And on Tuesday, Rockford Police Chief Dan O'Shea spoke out to ask for the public's help in finding him.  

Raheem King, 22 of Rockford, is wanted in the deaths of three people.

"He needs to be taken in to custody. He is extremely violent and dangerous," Chief O'Shea said. 

King allegedly used an assault rifle to gun down 22-year-old Daijon Sistrunk, 21-year-old Martavies Blake, and 27-year-old Sean Anderson. The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. Saturday on a private charter bus. After King opened fire, police say witnesses ran off the bus. The driver of the bus then drove to a Mobil gas station to call for help. 

Chief O'Shea says he believes members of the public may be hiding King. 

"He is an extremely violent and dangerous person. He's out with the public somewhere and someone, some individual, is helping him evade our arrest at this time," O'Shea said. 

If you have information on his whereabouts, you can call Rockford Area Crimestopperes to leave an anonymous tip. If your information leads to an arrest, a cash reward would be offered. The number to call is 815-963-7867.
