An altercation in a sports center parking lot after a soccer match ended Friday night when a man drove his SUV into a group of people, killing one and injuring four, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Priscilian Carranza, 22, of Waukegan fled the scene but was captured shortly afterward when a patrol officer stopped a damaged SUV that fit the description provided by witnesses.
Carranza appeared in court Saturday and was held in Lake County jail on $5 million bond on a murder charge, according to police, the Tribune said. His next appearance is set for October 29.
Police said they responded to a call about a fight at the Lake County Sports Center parking lot shortly before midnight Friday. When they arrived, they learned that several people had been struck by a vehicle.
Police described one victim as a man in his 40s. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. Three more victims were related to that man, police said, two men in their late teens and a 10-year-old girl. A man in his 20s was also struck. The three other mean were taken to a hospital for treatment of moderate injuries. The girl was not taken to a hospital.
Waukegan police said three people were in the 2010 GMC SUV when it was stopped, and Carranza was identified as the driver at the time of the incident.
