NORTH AURORA – The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of those responsible for the murder of a North Aurora man and two others in Wisconsin on Aug. 13.
The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into the shooting deaths at the Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, Wis. Police have identified the men as Derek K. Edwards, 26, of North Aurora, David L. Watson, 30, of Oswego, and Khalid R. Howard, 30, of Aurora.
Police said the three men were shot and killed in a food vending area in the parking lot of the dragway about 7 p.m.
The assailant in the case is described as an African-American man between the ages of 20 and 30 years old with a thin build, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, with scruffy hair on top and shaved hair on the sides, according to police.
Watson died while being transported to a local hospital. Edwards and Howard were pronounced dead at the scene.
At a press conference held the day after the shooting, Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth told reporters he believed the incident was gang-related and noted that the family members of the victims were not cooperating with the police investigation.
