A fatal shooting on Saturday night has investigators continuing to search for clues and witnesses. Alton Police responded to a shooting just before 11pm near the area of Tremont and Marilla Streets. 19-year old Dantavier Thompson of the 200 block of Elizabeth Street in Alton was shot once in the head and died at the scene. His car had crashed through a gate and come to rest on the playground at Lovejoy School.
Alton Police executed a search warrant last night in the 1000 block of Tremont Street and Captain Scott Waldrup says they have been exploring all possibilities in this investigation.
