The Major Case Squad continued to search Wednesday for a suspect or motive in the fatal shooting of a Belleville teen.
Cole Wierciszewski, 18, arrived at Memorial Hospital in Belleville about 5:17 p.m. Monday with a gunshot wound to the chest. He died about a half hour later, and the Major Case Squad was activated to investigate his death.
In a press release, Capt. Bruce Fleshren, deputy commander of the Major Case Squad, said they have interviewed several friends and associates in the investigation, but "at this time a definitive motive or suspect has not been developed."
According to police, a friend was the one who found Wierciszewski at 141 Paulette Drive and drove him to the hospital.
