    The Waukegan Police Department on Friday issued an arrest warrant for a man wanted in connection with a shooting at a north suburban Burger King a day earlier.

    Police said they found Shawntrell Haynes, 29, dead at the scene with a gunshot wound to the head at the restaurant at 3140 Belvidere Rd. in Waukegan.

    During the investigation, officers were told the shooting stemmed from some sort of argument and that the shooter fled in a green GMC van. The incident did not appear to be gang related, officials said.
