Prosecutors: Man who shot, killed another acted in self-defense

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) – A man who shot and killed another in Springfield was acting in self-defense, prosecutors said.

A press release from the Sangamon County state’s attorney said the shooting happened at 3:30 a.m. on July 7, when Martin A. Brown, 26, was inside of a home in the 1400 block of N. 11th St. Prosecutors said Willie C. Evans, 29, arrived at the home, banged on the door repeatedly and threatened violence.

The release said Evans then went to a bedroom window and forced an air conditioning unit through the window to get inside. Brown then fired a gunshot toward the window, striking Evans. Evans later died from his wound.

The state’s attorney said his office’s investigation found Brown acted with deadly force that was justified by the law “given the unique facts presented,” and, because of this, he will not face additional charges.

Brown faces counts of armed habitual criminal and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon because he had a firearm after past convictions of two forcible felonies, prosecutors said. These include a 2012 residential burglary conviction and a 2018 conviction for aggravated battery causing great bodily harm.

At the time of the shooting, Brown was on parole. He turned himself in on July 7 at the Springfield Police Department and is in custody on bond set at $500,000.

Three more fresh from the press, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. Not a bad score, either. Your patience has been, and doubtless will be again, appreciated.

    “Not a bad score, either.” Indeed! Wilted Willy has gone silly. Just look at the grin on his face. A Saturday Morning DRT Trifecta. Well, 1 DRT and 2 DOT. Ya counted the Springfield Story as a 0/1/0. Could actually be scored as a 1(Evans DOT)/0/1(Brown locked up).

    I had a Star 9mm for a short while in the early 90s. Nice little shooting iron, good fit, and accurate as all hell. Lost it and Baby Sister’s Taurus .38 to a Montgomery City/Montgomery County Ala-DAMN-bama po po on some trumped up traffic charges returning to God’s Country from Mobile at 0God45hrs Friday day after Thanksgiving of ’93. Real odd when the call was made to take care of the “ticket” on Monday there was “no record” and a “We don’t have a deputy with that name or badge number.”

    AND…. Just like that, BOOM, they are off to the great ghetto in the sky !!!

  3. I bought a Star .380 and a Colt Detective Special in nearly mint condition from my upstairs neighbor, and not bad for a hundred bucks apiece. Nothing to do with this virus so a couple of months ago, I vacuum bagged all but 2 handguns which were covered with Brownell’s 12X12 IN. rust inhibiting paper which I cut into strips.

    And yet law abiding citizens in St. Louis have their weapons taken away for no other reason than a political stunt.
