IBNS-CMEDIA: A gunman suspected to have killed eight people in three different locations over the past two days in the US city of Joliet was found dead 1,200 miles away Monday (January 22, 2024) night.

The suspect was identified as 23-year-old Romeo Nance.

He died reportedly due to a self-inflicted gunshot in Texas.
