Police said Goodall allegedly shot 19-year-old Jion Broomfield on January 29 in the high school parking lot after a basketball game. Broomfield later died of his injuries at Beloit Memorial Hospital.

“We appreciate the community’s ongoing support and sharing of information in this homicide investigation,” Beloit Chief of police Andre Sayles said. “The department has a proven track record in clearing violent crimes when the community helps with providing the information they know.”

According to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in Rock County Court, a person with the initials PB said they were in the parking lot outside of Beloit Memorial High School after the basketball game with Broomfield trying to decide what they were going to do with the rest of their night when they heard gunshots, after which Broomfield reportedly said, “I’m hit, cuz.” PB said they didn’t see which direction the shots came from.

Broomfield was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg at about 9:07 p.m. He died at the hospital less than an hour later.

A school resource officer learned there was a verbal argument after the game between the person with the initials PB and another former Beloit Memorial High School student with the initials CG, and the argument was seen on video from the high school. However, video shows CG got into a white Malibu and drove way before any of the gunshots were fired.

Witnesses and video from the school show some men from Madison — including Goodall — involved in the altercation. Witnesses say they saw one of the people from Madison get “slammed” to the ground and was getting beat up before someone matching Goodall’s description fired a gun. The criminal complaint says Madison police were able to help authorities in Rock County positively identify Goodall.

Anyone with information on Goodall’s whereabouts is urged to call police at 608-757-2244 or the Greater Beloit Area Crime Stoppers at 608 362-7463.
