Elgin police said they have no new information to release about the shooting, which happened at 2:11 a.m. on the 200 block of North Jackson Street.

Three men were shot. Reyes-Hernandez died a short time later at Amita St. Joseph Hospital. A second man sustained a serious injury, and the third had a nonlife-threatening injury, officials said.
