Gunman kills three on an Illinois ‘stripper-bus’ 

A gunman is on the lam after he shot and killed three victims who were on an “adult themed” bus in Illinois.

Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea revealed that the driver of the Distinguished Gentleman bus dialed 911 just before 3:30 am Saturday, WGN-TV reported.

The driver left the site of the shooting and parked the bus at a gas station where police arrived.

O’Shea indicated that a “suspect on the bus shot other individuals.”

Cops are looking for a man named Raheed King, 22. He is wanted on four first-degree murder charges.

The victims have not yet been identified.

Winnebago County Coroner Bill Hintz indicated that he could not comment on details about the victims or how many gunshot wounds they suffered from.

The purported shooter, 22-year-old Raheem D. King, has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder.

Authorities warned that King is armed with an assault rifle and is dangerous.

Immediately following the incident, several passengers ran off the bus and bolted.

Detectives have not yet revealed how many passengers were on the bus when the shooting took place.

“There’s an individual out there who has killed three people, and we need to apprehend … (that) individual,” O’Shea added.

Police revealed that another shooting occurred about ten blocks away from the crime scene, but it is believed that the shooting was unrelated.
