Police investigate at a crime scene location near Randall Lane and Bonhill Drive where a man was reported shot.

Cook County Sheriff’s police and Long Grove firefighter/paramedics responded about 9:26 a.m. Saturday to a shooting near Randall Lane and Bonhill Drive near unincorporated Arlington Heights in Palatine Township. Police arrived first on the scene and found a male subject down, apparently with gunshot wound(s) outside near Randall Lane and Bonhill Drive. The man that was gunned down was identified as Abel Oliva, 34, a maintenance man that was possibly working on his morning jobs at the apartment complex, Whispering Winds. He was pronounced dead at Northwest Community Hospital at 10:46 a.m. Saturday. Abel Oliva also lived at the Whispering Winds apartment complex. Word spread fast among residents in the apartment complex that the maintenance man had been shot.

Just after the shooting, a possible offending vehicle was first described as a gray Toyota 4-door. Later a witness reported a dark red or cranberry Chevy Express minivan, described as clean in the area of the shooting. A witness reported hearing two ‘pops’ and then saw a male on the ground, and the minivan leaving the area. A witness also reported seeing a male/Hispanic fleeing the area. He was described as wearing shorts or long short blue jeans. Apparently no witnesses saw the shooting, or no witness have come forward in reporting that they saw the homicide. The crime scene included a dumpster and an area of an apartment lawn just southwest of the dumpster.

A second battery was also reported in the area near Randall Lane.

Palatine police and Palatine firefighter/paramedics also responded to the scene. Palatine firefighter/paramedics responded to the report of a second battery victim, but did not transport anyone to the hospital from the scene Saturday morning.

Cook County Sheriff’s police are investigating. Police are also investigating any possible connection with a stabbing that occurred on Boxwood in Mount Prospect last Wednesday about 10:53 p.m. (See The Cardinal Police Activity Boxwood and Randhurst Village Area: Searching for Offender After Shots Fired, Man Stabbed)
