SHILOH, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

Three suspects are in police custody after a man was found dead outside an apartment building in Shiloh on Saturday night.

The Major Case Squad announced Thursday afternoon that two adult males and one juvenile male were in custody for alleged involvement in the homicide of Kenneth Easley. Authorities later identified them as 17-year-old Javier B. Anthony, 20-year-old Michael L. Jacskon III, and 21-year-old Rasheen D.L. Brazier. All have been charged with one count of felony murder. Anthony is being tried as an adult.

The Shiloh Police Department was dispatched to the 22 block of Yorkshire around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday for a gunshot victim.

An autopsy revealed 26-year-old Easley, of Shiloh, died due to multiple gunshot wounds.  

"I think my friend was set up, set up by some people that wanted what he had," said Gary Rainey, who lives in the complex where Easley was shot. "In Shiloh you work for what you want, same thing in Belleville. You work for what you want. You don't steal, you don't rob, you don't kill."

Authorities believe robbery was the motive.

According to Shiloh police, it has been six years since they have investigated a homicide.
