BELOIT, Wis. -

One of three men sought by Beloit police in an attempted homicide case was arrested in Chicago, according to Beloit police.

Beloit police identified Samuel L. Jones, 29, Terrell Peppers, 31, and Charles A. Steel, 29, as suspects in an Aug .4 shooting outside the Turtle Tap at 1344 East Grand Ave.

Peppers was arrested Wednesday in Chicago on a warrant, according to Beloit police.

Police are working with the Rock County District Attorney on Peppers’ extradition.

Police said they found evidence of a shooting in the parking lot at the bar after responding to a shots-fired call.

A few minutes later, the 911 center received a call that there was a gunshot wound victim near Nelson and Keeler avenues, according to police.

Police said when they arrived, officers found an abandoned car which had several bullet holes in it, and blood inside the vehicle indicating that someone had been injured.

Police said officers followed a blood trail from the car to a home in the 1200 block of Keeler Avenue. No one was there at the time but there was evidence indicating the victim had been there.

About an hour later, a hospital in Rockford, Ill., said it was treating a patient for gunshot wounds who had been shot in Beloit, according to police. The victim said he had been shot while in a vehicle in the Turtle Tap parking lot and fled the scene. The victim sustained non-life threatening wounds and was admitted to the hospital in good condition.

Jones and Steel should be considered armed and dangerous, and people with information on their whereabouts should call 911 or Beloit Crime Stoppers at 608-362-7463, police said.
