Police Identify Person of Interest in Saturday's Homicide

Evanston police have taken a possible suspect into custody in connection with the fatal shooting of Floyd Gibert, 30, this Saturday.

Evanston police have identified a person of interest and taken him or her into custody in connection with a fatal shooting this Saturday in the 2000 block of Darrow Avenue, according to the Evanston Review.

Police are still questioning the person of interest and will not release more information unless charges are approved by the State's Attorney's Office, the Evanston Review reports

The victim was a 30-year-old Evanston man named Floyd Gibert who lived in the 2000 block of Ashland Avenue, according to authorities. He was shot around 6:20 p.m. on Saturday, and there was a traffic crash at Green Bay Road and McCormick Boulevard shortly afterwards that police believe was caused by someone trying to transport him to the hospital. 

The person of interest may have been arrested Wednesday, during a police crackdown on crime coordinated by the Cook County Sheriff's Office. DNA Info is reporting that police arrested a possible suspect in the Evanston shooting during the daylong sting.
