Murder Suspect Tiron M. Washington (33) of Zion, IL
(Kenosha County Sheriff)

After a more than five month manhunt, Tiron Washington is in police custody. KCE was tipped off and the Kenosha Police Detective Bureau administration confirmed that Washington is in custody in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Washington was on a bus and another cummuter saw him transfer a handgun from his waist to his backpack. Tulsa police were called and Washington was arrested. He is expected to be extradited to Kenosha to face trial for the hit-like murder.

On Monday, December 13, 2021, a Kenosha Court Commissioner signed a $1,000,000 warrant for Washington, who is accused of shooting 15 rounds into the vehicle of a 35 year old Kenosha man, striking him several times, and killing him. Moore was set to testify against Washington in a felony firearms sale case in Lake County, IL.

Maximmillion A. Moore (35) of Kenosha

According to the criminal complaint, On December 10, 2021 at 7:13am, police were called to the intersection of 26th St and 23rd Ave for a report of a man with a machine gun firing at a parked car. Police arrived and found Moore inside his truck and a hole in the driver’s side window. Moore was pronounced dead on the scene. According to surveillance footage, Moore was inside his truck that was parked in front of his home. A Silver BMW 320i drove up to Moore’s truck and parked in front of it. An individual wearing all white exited the BMW and fired multiple rounds into Moore’s truck through the driver’s side window striking Moore multiple times. The man in white entered the BMW and took off.  The BMW was stolen from Justice, IL about three weeks ago and was abandoned a few blocks away after the shooting and located by police. Another video showed the man in white exit the BMW and get into a dark-colored Jeep and leave the area southbound on Sheridan Rd. The jeep was later found, unoccupied and running in the 1800 block of Sheridan Rd . A plethora of evidence was located in the jeep, including a firearm that fires the same caliber rounds as the shells located at the murder scene. Yet another video from this location showed two men, one assumingly Washington, and the other, assumingly also involved in this homicide, perhaps as the getaway driver. The man who is the alleged trigger man took off his white clothing and put it into a garbage can that was recovered by police.

The owner of the jeep, Shanta D. Davis is Washington’s ex girlfriend. Police had her review the video and she confirmed that the man who took off the white clothing was Washington. He had black clothing underneath. On January 13, 2021 the victim allegedly illegally purchased a firearm from Washington from Washington’s residence in Zion, IL. Washington was charged with a felony for selling the gun to Moore in Lake County, IL Circuit Court. It is assumed that Washington wanted the witness dead so he couldn’t testify at his upcoming trial. It is unclear if the victim, a convicted felon and sex offender was charged with a crime for this purchase, but Illinois court records appear to show he was not. One of Washington’s friends, Stephen Mintern was asked to store the stolen BMW a week before the homicide. Washington’s cousin drove the BMW to Mintern’s house. Washington gave his cousin and Mintern gloves to wear when inside the BMW. Mintern doesn’t appear to have been charged with anything yet. A woman named Alyssa Vanderwall who’s relation to Washington isn’t mentioned, and Mintern drove to BMW to a Kenosha trailer park in Kenosha and dropped it off – Washington and his cousin followed behind. Washington paid Vanderwall in Heroin for helping him stage the vehicle. Washington left the BMW in the trailer park and drove the three back, including his cousin. A woman named Angela Moore, who’s involvement isn’t stated, told police that Shanta Davis’s child heard Washington threaten to kill Moore a few days prior to the murder.

Lake County Incident

We have learned more about this case after speaking with Illinois Law Enforcement. Federal Authorities were working with a CI (Confidential Informant) to commit controlled buys of guns from Washington. It is believed by KCE, that the CI was Moore, but of course police can’t confirm or deny this. Federal agents didn’t obtain sufficient evidence to indict Washington Federally, but Zion Police and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office investigated and referred charges to the Lake County State’s Attorney. Washington was charged on May 26, 2021 for three counts of possession of weapons (Enhanced) by a felon. He could face almost 75 years behind bars. The victim, Max Moore bought at least one firearm from Washington according to Kenosha prosecutors. Washington is a bad hombre:

2013 Resist Officer

2013 (5 Counts) Home Invasion (2 Counts) Armed Habitual Criminality


2009 Defraud Drug and Alcohol Screening Test


2008 Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance With Intent To Deliver
