Charges could be filed as early as today in connection with a weekend shooting death in Alton.  Police say a black male in his mid-30’s was found on the back porch of a home in the 1,000 block of Market Street Saturday afternoon.  Police responded to a report of shots fired in the area around 4:30.

A number of vehicles were seen leaving the area at about the same time.  Following a weekend canvas of witnesses, police identified a person of interest in the case, and interviewed him for most of the day Monday.  The identity of the victim has not been revealed, pending the notification of family.
