KANKAKEE, Ill. (AP) - Weekend shootings in Kankakee County have claimed the lives of two local men.

Police say Tashon Jones of St. Anne was shot multiple times at a bar near the Indiana state line early Saturday morning. Kankakee County Coroner Bob Gessner says the 24-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital at about 1:30 a.m.

Gessner says 20-year-old Johan Rowe of Kankakee died at a hospital Sunday morning after he was shot in the abdomen in a separate incident.

Police are still investigating both shooting deaths and are considering them to be homicides. Further information wasn’t available as of Monday morning.
