BELOIT - A Beloit man has been charged in a drive-by shooting attempt on Sept. 26 in Beloit, according to Rock County Circuit Court records.

Kejuan D. Hill, 23, is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide as a party to a crime, possession of a firearm by an adjudicated delinquent, carrying a concealed weapon and obstructing an officer, according to a criminal complaint filed in Rock County Circuit Court.

According to court records, Beloit police responded to a report of shots fired at around 1:50 a.m. on Sept. 26 in the area of Porter and Summit avenues. Officers found five fired .40 caliber shell casings near the intersection of Summit and Wilson before following a fluid trail from the intersection to a car parked in the driveway of a home in the 1300 block of Copeland that had damage consistent with being struck by bullets.

Police made contact with a man at the home on Copeland who said that earlier in the day he observed a car drive slowly by the home. The man told police he saw the same vehicle while turning onto the Summit Avenue and the vehicle did not have its lights on. He then heard gunshots, according to the complaint.

The man later told police he recognized Hill as one of the two people in the car.

Hill was arrested by Beloit police following a foot pursuit on Oct. 2 in the 1700 block of Royce Avenue after officers attempted to make contact with him. Officers recovered a .40 caliber handgun found in Hill's possession at the time of his arrest.

Hill is currently in custody at the Rock County Jail on a $25,000 signature bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 15 at 9 a.m. before Rock County Court Commissioner Stephen Meyer.

The incident was not listed on the public Beloit Police Department media log, an online resource that publishes calls for service for the Beloit Police Department daily.
