Man killed in Bloomington

July 25, 2012

A man was fatally shot early Wednesday, one block away from where hundreds of people gathered to apply for low-income housing in Bloomington. Police responded to the scene in the 1000 block of North Illinois Street at 2:19 a.m. and found 28-year-old Ulysses Goethe lying in the street, suffering from a gunshot wound. Witnesses said the shooting victim was in the Section 8 housing line not long before his death. They said he had been talking to the shooter, walked away and was tracked down minutes later and shot to death.
