Blackshear

BELOIT - An Indianapolis, Indiana man wanted for his alleged involvement in the April 14 shooting at Rooney's Pub on Portland Avenue has been arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service, according to Beloit police.

Daniel T. Blackshear, 26, was being sought on the charge of attempted first-degree intentional homicide for allegedly shooting Terey A. Vance, 36, of Beloit, multiple times in the jaw, neck and lower right hip, according to a criminal complaint filed against Blackshear.

He was arrested Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals Service in Indiana. The shooting took place after a group of individuals began talking inside the bar on April 14. As the victim and a woman approached the group, Blackshear "steps back, raises his hand up and then shoots (Vance)," according to the complaint.

Beloit police officers report Blackshear was seen in video footage from the bar with what appeared to be a handgun in his hand as he fled the area. Keys dropped by one individual at the bar were recovered by an employee, and authorities believe the keys are linked to a 2015 Lincoln MKZ that was parked on Third Street near Merrill, according to the complaint. The registered owner of the vehicle was contacted, who said her son had last used the vehicle on April 14.

According to court records as of Wednesday morning the person seen with Blackshear, and identified in the criminal complaint, has not been charged in the case.

Beloit investigators received a call from a citizen informant who implicated Blackshear in the shooting on the afternoon of April 14.

Authorities met with the informant the following day to further attempt to confirm Blackshear's alleged involvement, according to the complaint.
