LANSING — A man charged in a triple shooting at a Lansing bar has been captured by FBI agents in Evergreen Park, police said.

Jeffrey Turner, 29, of Chicago was arrested Wednesday by the FBI Fugitive Task Force, said Detective Lt. Scott Bailey of the Lansing Police Department. Turner was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Lansing Police Department.

Turner faces three counts of attempted murder through the Cook County courts systems and additional charges against him are pending.

At 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 13, Lansing officers were called to a report of shots fired at Torrence Tap, at 18052 Torrence Ave.

When police arrived, they found three gunshot victims and Lansing Fire Department EMS and officers worked together to render aid. The three victims were taken to a hospital and have since recovered, police said.

Lansing police and Illinois State Police Crime Scene Investigators searched the scene and collected evidence in the bar parking lot and along Indiana Avenue. Lansing detectives also interviewed witnesses and victims from Torrence Tap and police obtained video surveillance footage from the bar.

In addition, Lansing squad vehicles equipped with license plate reader cameras captured crucial evidence.

After Lansing authorities provided the information to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, an arrest warrant was issued for Turner.

Following his capture, Turner will be transported Thursday to the Markham Sixth District Courthouse for a bond hearing.

"Lansing police would like to thank the victims, witnesses, and business owners for their cooperation in this case," Bailey said. "By working together, investigators were able to quickly gather leads and evidence for an arrest warrant for Turner. The Lansing Police Department would also like to thank Illinois State Police Crime Scene Investigators and the FBI for their assistance in this case."
