A suspect sought in connection with a shooting in Sugar Grove was caught out of state on Thursday.

Kennrith L. Foster, 48, whose last known address was in East Chicago, Ind., was taken into custody in Arizona by the Phoenix FBI Violent Crime Fugitive Task Force, a news release stated.

Sugar Grove Police Chief Pat Rollins thanked the public, Kane County Major Crimes Task Force, Chicago FBI Violent Crime Fugitive Task Force and Phoenix FBI Violent Crime Fugitive Task Force for their assistance in providing tips and investigative leads that helped bring Foster into custody, the release stated.

Charges have been authorized by the Kane County States Attorney’s Office against Foster upon his return to Illinois. He is being charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, armed violence, aggravated battery discharge of a firearm, aggravated domestic battery, unlawful use or possession of a weapon and aggravated unlawful use of weapon by a felon, the release stated.

Foster allegedly entered a business in the 300 block of Sugar Grove Parkway in Sugar Grove around 3 a.m. Dec. 17. Foster had a previous relationship with someone employed at the business, and they formerly had domestic disputes with one another, the release stated, noting it was not a random event as the offender knew the victim.

Foster allegedly fired a gun striking the victim and physically attacked her further causing additional injuries. Foster immediately fled in a vehicle from the scene, the release stated.

“Incidents of this nature are rare in Sugar Grove," Sugar Grove Village President Sean Michels said in the release. "It’s reassuring to know our police department is well trained and prepared. I want to thank all our officers and partner agencies that worked together on this case.”
