Names are released of men involved in fatal La Rose shooting

Posted by wlpo on July 27, 2015

A 72-year-old man faces first-degree murder charges after a shooting Sunday morning in La Rose.

The charges were filed yesterday in Marshall County Court against Thomas Masterson. According to the Peoria Journal Star, he’s accused of shooting and killing 43-year-old Darrin Lancaster also of La Rose. Lancaster was found dead by police in the driveway of Masterson’s house.

Masterson hasn’t been in court yet since he was taken to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria for injuries that apparently stemmed from a fight. He led police on a two-hour standoff at his house Sunday morning but eventually surrendered peacefully.
