Champaign Man Wanted In Shootings Near U of I Campus
Police are searching for an 18-year-old Champaign man following a deadly shooting over the weekend near the University of Illinois campus. An arrest warrant has been issued for Robbie Patton, charging him with the murder of George Korchev. Authorities say the Mundelein man was killed and three others were hurt when gunshots were fired early Sunday in an area of Champaign known as Campustown. Patton pleaded guilty to a gun crime in April and was sentenced to eight years in prison. He served time in a boot camp instead and was released just over two weeks prior to the shooting.
