Galesburg Shooting At Party

Posted: Updated:


What was meant to be a fun night with friends turns deadly for one. 

Isiash Steven, 18, died from gunshot injuries sustained last night at a small party in the basement of a Galesburg house. 

Police arrested Cody Delacruz, 20, who lives in the home. He is being charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Police said Stevens was one of several attending the party in the basement and that there was underage drinking before Delacruzm, a legal gun owner, decided to show off his gun.

 "You never bring a weapon out when you're under the influence of alcohol or drugs," Galesburg P.D.'s Rod Riggs said. "You never show your weapon off."

Delacruz was in his home and there is no law stating a person has to keep their gun locked away. Police said the investigation is ongoing.
