A Tennessee man and two northern Kane County juveniles each face first-degree murder charges in the Monday-evening shooting death of 27-year-old Jordan Durr of Carpentersville.
Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon has charged 17-year-old Devon C. Coleman of East Dundee, 22-year-old Joel V. Leitner of Murfreesboro, TN, and 17-year-old Phillip Walker of Carpentersville each with the offenses of:
- First-degree murder, 3 counts
- Attempted armed robbery, Class 1 felony
Kane County prosecutors allege that at about 9 p.m. Monday, June 8, Jordan Durr walked up to a vehicle that was parked at 9 Oxford Drive, Carpentersville.
Leitner was the driver and Coleman and Walker each were passengers. As Durr was talking to the vehicle’s occupants, someone inside the car shot Durr in the left side of his chest. Durr ran a short distance and collapsed near a Dumpster.
The three stepped out of the car, went to where Durr was lying and went through his clothing. Carpentersville police arrived a short time later and placed Coleman, Leitner and Walker under arrest.
Durr was pronounced dead a short time later at a local hospital.
The three appeared today in Kane County bond court. The judge set Leitner’s bail at $750,000, with 10% ($75,000) to apply for bond. The judge set bail for Coleman and Walker at $500,000, with 10% ($50,000) to apply for bond.
The judge set the next court appearance for all three for 1 p.m. June 19, 2020, in Courtroom 305 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
According to Illinois law, a 17-year-old charged with first-degree murder shall be prosecuted in adult court.
The Carpentersville Police Department conducted the investigation.
The charges against Coleman, Leitner and Walker are not proof of guilt. Coleman, Leitner and Walker are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
