Kane County authorities have identified the man killed in a shooting outside a West Dundee fitness center on Wednesday.

The victim is 36-year-old Sherron Sharpe, the Kane County coroner's office reported Saturday. Officials did not give Sharpe's hometown, but online records indicate previous addresses included Gilberts and Poplar Grove.

 

No one else was injured in the assault at 5:30 p.m. outside Esporta Fitness, located in an outlot of Spring Hill Mall along Route 31.

West Dundee police on Thursday said the public was not in danger, characterizing the shooting as "targeted" and not a random act of violence.

Two people of interest were being questioned as of last week.
