GALESBURG (WEEK) – A man has been sentenced to 26-years in prison for a shooting that wounded four people in Galesburg early on New Year’s morning.
Just minutes before his jury trial was set to begin, Kyle Reddick pleaded guilty to attempted first degree murder.
Authorities said about 2 a.m. on January 1, Reddick fired shots from a porch at a home on Monroe Street. All four victims were in a car parked in the driveway. They survived their wounds.
Knox County State’s Attorney Jeremy Karlin said in a statement that he was satisfied with the outcome.
“We have avoided the risks of trial while sending a strong message to the community that gun violence will not be tolerated,” Karlin said.
Reddick must serve 85% of his sentence.
