A man was found fatally shot Monday night in the driveway of his home in south suburban Chicago Heights.
Someone shot Kevin Allison, 42, at his home in the 500 block of Concord Court, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Police were called to Allison's home about 9:20 p.m. after someone called 911 to report someone may have been shot, said Chicago Heights Police Chief of Detectives Joe Bruni. Officers found Allison, slumped over and shot in a wheelchair in his driveway, Bruni said.
Police had no one in custody and were canvassing the neighborhood looking for witnesses today, Bruni said. Early reports indicated that Allison may have been involved in a fight with several other men before the shooting, but investigators were still gathering information, he said.
Allison was pronounced dead on the scene at 9:44 p.m., according to the medical examiner's office.
Allison has an extensive criminal record and was a registered sex offender, according to court records and Illinois State Police. Allison was convicted in 1994 of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a woman in a 1993 case, according to state and court records.
Allison has numerous arrests for assault and battery, as well as some for theft. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison in a 2008 case in which he was convicted of aggravated battery of a paramedic or other medical personnel.
At the time of his death, Allison was scheduled to appear in Markham Branch Court next month on a misdemeanor aggravated assault charge from earlier this summer.
