Alton police are looking for what is believed to be three men involved in a gunfire incident earlier this week at Ardent Mills. At about 2:30am Tuesday an employee of the business saw a suspicious car on their lot underneath the American flag mural. As he approached the vehicle, one of the occupants got out and shot at the employee.
There had been a couple of vehicle burglaries there the day before. The employee is a Concealed Carry license holder. He fired back at the suspect as they drove away. No one was injured, but a couple of vehicles sustained damage. The suspects, who police believe have been involved in other crimes in the Riverbend this week, fled into Missouri. Alton Police are working with other agencies on both sides of the Mississippi River to find and apprehend these suspects.
