Police tape sets off an area that was part of the scene where multiple shootings occurred in the 1200 block of Orchard Road Tuesday night. One man is dead and two others are in critical condition.

BLOOMINGTON — Police continue to search for a third suspect involved in an April homicide and warn the public he should be considered armed and dangerous.

On Monday, a warrant was issued for the arrest of 18-year-old Scotty A. Allen, aka “30,” whose last known address was Bloomington. He is one of three suspects in the April 2 murder of Juan Nash on Orchard Road in Bloomington. Allen is described as a black man, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

“Please do not approach Scotty Allen,” police said in a statement released Tuesday. “Call 911 or the local police if he is seen.”

Already in custody and charged with murder are Amari McNabb, 20, of Country Club Hills, and Exodus Hebert, 18, of Bloomington. Court documents indicate McNabb may have lived in Las Vegas, Nev., recently, as well.

Allen was shot during the incident and police found him at a local hospital. He recovered, as did another injured man, Nathaniel Caldwell, 26.

Bond was set at $3 million for Allen, meaning that once arrested, he must post $300,035 to be released. Bond was set at $2 million for McNabb and Hebert. Both are due in court at 9 a.m. June 21.

Neighbors reported hearing multiple gunshots during the Orchard Road incident. Nash was found unresponsive inside a vehicle that crashed into a parked car about two blocks from where the shots were fired. He was unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective Jared Bierbaum at 309-434-2807 or jbierbaum@cityblm.org, or call the department’s main phone line at 309-820-8888.
