LAKE COUNTY, Illinois -- The Kenosha County homicide suspect who eluded capture for nearly two weeks is jailed in Illinois and awaiting extradition proceedings.
Wednesday afternoon, Andrew Obregon was scheduled twice to appear in Lake County court, but courthouse staff says those appearances are delayed until Thursday, as prosecutors continue preparing their case.
A spokesperson for the Lake County Sheriff's Department shared new information regarding Obregon's arrest near Zion, Illinois -- including the fact that the foot pursuit was almost one mile long and Obregon was shot by law enforcement prior to his capture. The spokesperson will not disclose where he was shot, though his mugshot shows a strap, perhaps from a sling on Obregon's left arm.
Whether Obregon was armed when police caught up to him is not being released, nor is there any indication from police that the suspect, described by the Kenosha County Sheriff as a "crackhead," was under the influence of any drugs or intoxicants.
Authorities say Obregon is a suspect in the death of 37-year-old Tywon Anderson and is wanted for several robberies and auto thefts.
Obregon did appear in court for a bond hearing, but no bond was set and he remains in Lake County lockup.
