Charges Issued In Two Separate Metro-East Shootings

Madison County, IL  (KTRS)  A couple of Alton men are facing charges in connection with two separate shootings last weekend.

Timothy Cook and Nekemar Pearson have been charged on several counts, including aggravated battery with a firearm. Police say Cook and Pearson got into an argument with a group of individuals at a house party in Godfrey early Saturday morning when shots were fired. A 23-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the arm.

Prior to that incident, police allege that Cook and Pearson were armed with handguns when they confronted three individuals in the 22-hundred block of Pontoon Road in Granite City late Friday night. The victims told police that one of the suspects opened fire. None of individuals were hit in the gunfire, but at least two vehicles were damaged.

Cook is in custody, but Pearson is still being sought.
