Police: Longstanding personal feud was motive for Windsor shooting

  • 0

WINDSOR — A 62-year-old man was arrested after a shooting Saturday that left another man hospitalized with multiple gunshot wounds in his lower abdomen, police said. 

The Windsor Police Department responded to a report shots fired in the 1000 block of Indiana Avenue around 9:15 p.m Saturday, the department said in a statement. Officers found the wounded man, a 34-year-old Windsor resident. He was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital and was said to be in stable condition. 

An eyewitness identified Robert A. Fraker, of Windsor, as the suspect, police said. Fraker was arrested and taken into custody at the Shelby County Jail. The firearm was found near where Fraker was arrested, police said. 

He appeared in court Monday morning on a charge of attempted battery with discharge of a firearm, a Class X felony. His bond was set at $500,000. He is expected to be charged with attempted murder as well, Windsor Police Chief Travis Boyer said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. 

The motive for the shooting is believed to be a longstanding feud between the men. Law enforcement officials have had contact with them before, Boyer said. 

"These two have had a ongoing feud for quite some time," Boyer said. "They are two guys that didn’t get along, and one of them really didn’t like the other one." 

Other agencies assisted the Windsor Police Department including Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, the Moultrie County Sheriff’s Office, Findlay Police Department and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police.
