Investigation into deadly Labor Day shooting continues


DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) Police are still looking for the person who shot and killed Keith Brewer, 29, on September 3.

Police say Brewer was sitting in a car talking with someone else in the early morning when another vehicle pulled up and someone inside fired shots. Authorities pronounced Brewer dead at the scene, and an autopsy found that he had died of a gunshot wound “of the arm involving the chest.”

A Decatur Police detective told a coroner’s jury Tuesday that police do not have anyone in custody for the shooting. He would not say whether police have uncovered a motive in the case but said investigators are “still looking at leads.”

Family and friends remembered Brewer at a vigil earlier this month.
