*** UPDATED x1 - Suspect identified *** Rep. Gordon-Booth’s stepson dies

Saturday, May 24, 2014

* Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth’s stepson was murdered early Saturday morning

Derrick L. Booth Jr., 22, was pronounced dead at 2:55 a.m. in the emergency room of OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, according to Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll.

Booth’s father is Manual coach Derrick Booth Sr., who is married to State Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria.

Police were dispatched at 2:27 a.m. to 813 S. Greenlawn Ave. on a call of shots fired and learned a male had been shot while en route.

Derrick Booth Jr. was found on the porch of the residence with a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Rep. Gordon-Booth, who is close to being 9 months’ pregnant, just lost her brother last year.

Keep her in your thoughts, please.

*** UPDATE *** From the Peoria Journal Star

A man with an extensive arrest history for drugs, violence and driving infractions has been identified as the suspected shooter in the homicide of Derrick L. Booth Jr.

Sean T. Walls, 37, is wanted in connection with the Saturday morning slaying. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call the Peoria Police Department at 673-4521 or CrimeStoppers at 673-9000.

Police warned that Walls is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Booth — the son of Manual Academy basketball coach Derrick Booth Sr. and stepson of state Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria — was shot in the chest about 2:30 a.m. Saturday on the porch of 813 S. Greenlawn Ave. The home was the site of a gathering that night.
