Rockford police are investigating the murder of Isidro Duran, 47, of Chicago . Duran , known as " Roadrunner" , was an ice cream vendor and was gunned down around 6:30 Sunday night in the 700 block of Loomis. Rockford Police say he was shot several times. The Winnebago County Coroner's Office says Duran was taken to Rockford Memorial Hospital around 7:10 p.m. , where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives from the Rockford Police Dept. conducted a follow-up investigation and the results were reviewed by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office. Authorities tell us as a result three suspects were arrested: Justin L. Dismuke, Michael C. Jennings, and Rafael E. Santos have been taken into custody and charged with First Degree Murder. All three suspects were lodged in the Winnebago County Jail, where they are being held on a $1 million bond.

Arrested: Justin L. Dismuke 18 years old Rockford, IL
Michael C. Jennings 18 years old Rockford, IL
Rafael E. Santos 17 years old Rockford, IL

The charge against Dismuke, Jennings, and Santos is merely an accusation and not evidence of their guilt. As with defendants in all criminal cases, they are considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.

We will have more information on this story on 23 News at Noon, 5, 6, and the Update at 10.
