Condition improving for one of victims injured in Sunday’s fatal shooting in front of St. Charles nightclub

The condition of one of the victims injured in Sunday’s fatal shooting in front of Trilogy Night Club and Lounge in St. Charles has been upgraded from critical to stable.

The 27-year-old man, who was the third victim in the shooting, is in stable condition at Advocate Good Samaritan in Downers Grove, said St. Charles Deputy Police Chief Erik Mahan on Tuesday.

The second victim, a 42-year-old man, has been discharged from Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva and the fourth victim, a 25-year-old woman, has been discharged from Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora.

Michael D.V. Carwell, 22, of the 1900 block of Bayview Lane, Aurora, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, three felony counts of attempted murder and three felony counts of aggravate battery. He is in custody in the Kane County Jail on a $3 million bond, with 10 percent ($300,000) to apply for bail.

According to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office, at about 2 a.m. Sunday, Carwell approached 23-year-old Khalief McCallister, of Aurora, and the second victim in the parking lot in front of Trilogy, 2051 Lincoln Highway, St. Charles.

The pair had just left the establishment, the news release stated. Carwell fired multiple shots from a 9mm handgun, killing McCallister and injuring three others, according to the release.

After being identified as a suspect, Carwell was taken into custody later on Sunday.

Carwell’s next court appearance is set for 10 a.m. July 16 in Courtroom 313 at the Kane County Judicial Center, via remote access.

In light of Sunday’s fatal shooting in front of Trilogy Night Club and Lounge in St. Charles that left one person dead and injured three others, St. Charles Mayor Lora Vitek on Monday announced that she has suspended its liquor license.

In addition, Vitek called for the owners of Trilogy to appear before an emergency hearing of the city’s Liquor Control Commission at 8 a.m. Wednesday to determine if further actions are warranted.
