On 11/7/16 at 1:28 p.m., officers responded to a report of shots fired and a person injured in the area of Lincoln and Wilson in the City of Janesville. Moments later officers were informed that a gunshot victim had arrived at Mercy Hospital. Arriving officers found bullet casings at the scene of the shooting. Further, officers learned that the victim, a Janesville resident, had driven himself to the hospital. The victim is expected to survive his injuries.
Witnesses at the scene reported that four individuals, the victim and three others, were observed at the scene of the shooting. The four individuals fled in two vehicles after the shots were fired. One vehicle was described as a silver sedan.
Another witness reported hearing the sounds of two gunshots and observed a speeding silver sedan flee the area of the gunshots and abruptly stop in the driveway of 416 Johnson Street. Two suspects fled the vehicle and entered 416 Johnson Street. Officers surrounded the home awaiting the assistance of other officers.
The Janesville Police Department’s SWAT team was deployed to 416 Johnson Street. The Beloit Police Department and the Rock County Sheriff’s Office SWAT teams both assisted with the operation.
At 6:10 p.m., a juvenile male exited the residence and surrendered to officers. He was arrested on an outstanding capias’ for battery, theft, disorderly conduct, and robbery. He is a Beloit resident that was visiting an acquaintance at the residence. A search of the home later in the evening revealed no additional suspects in the home. OC and CS gas was inserted into the home prior to the search.
Officers learned the identity of one of the suspects, Nando Enis. He was subsequently taken into custody in the 200 block of E. Racine Street at 10:00 p.m.
At this time the investigation reveals that the shooting was a result of dispute over the sale of illegal drugs. The suspects were texting each other trying to determine a location to meet and complete the drug sales transaction. They ultimately met at Lincoln and Wilson.
