Man wanted for triple homicide in Illinois arrested in Milwaukee

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say a man charged in a shooting that left three men dead and a 4-year-old boy wounded at a central Illinois apartment complex has been arrested during a Wisconsin drug bust.

Police in Bloomington, Illinois, say Milwaukee police took 25-year-old Sydney T. Mays Jr. into custody Thursday, along with several others suspected of drug offenses.

WGLC-FM reports police determined Mays was suspected in the June 18 shootings. Warrants authorized in Illinois include first-degree murder and attempted murder charges. Police had appealed to the public for help finding Mays.

Police haven't offered a potential motive. The McLean County coroner identified those killed as 22-year-olds Corey Jackson and Nathaniel Pena and 33-year-old Juan Perez-Macedo. All are from Bloomington, where police say the case remains under "active investigation."
