Beloit, we wanted to provide you an update on a few shooting investigations underway from the June 5-7 weekend. Our detectives are working incredibly hard and pursuing leads in these reported shootings. If you have any information to share about these shooting incidents, please call our non-emergency line at 608-757-2244 or send an anonymous tip at

The first confirmed incident occurred in the 1600 block of Riverside Drive in Riverside Park as a shots fired call at 11:16 p.m. Friday, June 5. Through the course of the investigation, it was determined that 18-year-old Journee Weathers Jr., a Beloit male, received a minor wound. He was treated and released in that incident. Journee did not stay on scene of the shooting and we were notified about his injuries when he sought medical treatment.

The second confirmed shooting occurred at 3:28 a.m. June 6 near Dewey and Copeland avenues. This was initially a shots fired investigation with no victims on scene. The police department confirmed on Friday, June 12, that one individual received a non-life threatening injury. The Beloit Police Department is not releasing the name of that victim at this time. We were notified that this individual was shot after the victim sought medical treatment at a hospital outside of Rock County; that individual initially denied being shot in Beloit to law enforcement in the jurisdiction of that hospital.

The third confirmed incident started in the area of Burton and Moore streets at 7:16 p.m. Sunday, June 7, with the victims stopping for assistance near Burton Street and Madison Road.
