Manhunt underway after 3 people shot in Taylorville, IL

The man was arrested in Taylorville Ill. at the hospital around 4 p.m

That's when he shot himself in the head and was eventually transported to a Springfield hospital. Police found him on a rural road and started chasing him.

Police said Kennedy later robbed the Colonial Pantry in Stonington, Illinois around 3:00 p.m. He was under house arrest at the time. The Hillsboro school district reacted to the situation by placing schools on an administrative lockdown, according to a social media post from the district.

The vehicle left at McDonald's, a white 1996 GMC Sierra pickup truck, was recovered by the Taylorville Police Department and towed from where it had been left.

With an armed and risky suspect at large and evidence that he had been in Hillsboro, Beckemeyer School, Hillsboro Junior High School, and Hillsboro High School were placed under "administrative lock-down" Monday afternoon, according to Superintendent David Powell, with all exterior doors locked and limited student movement. The shootings happened Monday morning in the 500 block of South Walnut Street. When they arrived on scene they found the three victims wounded including a teenager. The victims were treated at a local hospital before being transferred to a Springfield hospital for further treatment. Police said they believed he could be headed to the Southern Illinois area. "Came around here and just about wrecked".

Taylorville Police Chief Brian Hile said they are "monitoring the posts".

In a Facebook post Saturday, Kennedy wrote, "someone close, pretty much family, that I have known 20 + yrs (sic) decides to stab me in the back".

The Christian County State's Attorney's Office, the Christian County Sheriff's Office, the Illinois State Police and several other outside agencies are assisting with the investigation. "She has been sharing information with my ex on many occasions".

Police said Kennedy had been wearing an ankle monitor but removed it.
