DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) – A murder arrest warrant is out for a suspect in a July 2019 deadly shooting.

Police said in a bulletin they are searching for 26-year-old Kronterial N. Bond, also known as “Kronic”, in connection to the early morning shooting death of 27-year-old Demetrius D. Ford on July 14. That shooting happened in the 1400 block of Decatur’s E. Hickory St.

Bond is considered armed and dangerous, the bulletin said. 

As WAND-TV previously reported, responders found Ford on the front porch of a Decatur house. Police said he died from gunshot wounds.

The warrant involves a charge of first-degree murder with bond at $2 million.
