An active duty serviceman from Florida was charged Sunday with murder and attempted murder in a shooting at a Rockford, Ill., bowling alley that authorities said was completely random. 

Duke Webb, 37, was arrested Saturday night at the scene of the shooting and charged with three counts of murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder.

“We believe this is a completely random act,” Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea said Sunday.

Three men aged 73, 65 and 69 were killed, the chief said. Two teenagers and a 63-year-old man were wounded. None had any connection to the suspect, officials said.

The shooting comes at the end of one of Rockford’s most violent years, with more than 30 murders reported.
