Kamron Taylor Captured
A few minutes before midnight on April 3, escaped convicted murderer Kamron Taylor was captured in Chicago by officers assigned to Chicago Police Department Tactical Team.
According to statements received by our command center from the Chicago Police Department a suspicious subject was spotted by officers around 92nd and Stoney Island and when approached, the subject fled from police. A foot chase ensued and the suspect was detained and found to be in possession of a loaded hand gun.
The subject was initially uncooperative and did not respond to officers questions. Taylor was identified when Chicago Police contacted the Command Center in Kankakee and compared tattoos. Taylor was positively identified by a fingerprint match. He is being held in Chicago on the weapons charge. It has not been determined when Taylor may return to Kankakee.
We are grateful to the community for the tips that were provided, and grateful to all of the law enforcement agencies that assisted the Sheriff’s Department. Besides all of the local law enforcement, I would like to thank the Illinois State Police, the US Marshal’s Service, the US Marshal Service Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, ATF, Project Safe Neighborhood Task Force, Illinois Department of Corrections, ILEAS, KAMEG, TKAT ( Stolen Auto Task Force), LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office, Lake County Indiana Sheriff’s Office, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, and the Chicago Police Department.
