Google Street View of the neighborhood where about 20 shots were fired at a party on Sherwood Drive in Streamwood.

Streamwood police responded late night/early morning June 2, 2013 to the 400 block of Sherwood Drive to a complaint about a loud party that turned out to be partygoers taking target practice with a .22 caliber revolver that hit two neighboring homes.

One bullet projectile ended up traveling through the bedroom in one of the homes and lodged in a closet door. The resident was taking a shower in an adjacent bathroom when the bullet hit.

Peter Kiescher, 49, hosting the party was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, a felony, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Kiescher’s son and three of his friends also were charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, according to police. The subjects were identified as Peter Kriescher Jr., 18, of the 13000 block of South 70th Court, Palos Heights; Jacalyn Dooley, 20, of the 8000 block of Nielsen Drive, Tinley Park; Jaime Johnson, 22, of the 10400 block of South Maplewood, Chicago; and Teresa Kitchin, of the 14300 block of south Woodland Avenue, Orland Park. Police investigating the subjects discovered none of them had a firearms owner ID (FOID) card.

Police secured the area when they discovered that what was initially believed to be fireworks were bullets flying. Even a girl at the party thought she was only shooting a BB gun. Police called for back up and were considering a SWAT response, especially when they called the home where the party was being held and got no answer. Next they used a bullhorn to ask people to more to the front of the house, but the people were uncooperative and went inside, turned off the lights and closed the blinds.

Eventually, the subjects were arrested with some neighboring police agencies assisting Streamwood police.

Police estimate the revolver was fired about 20 times at books and a beer can — using a large wood crate filled with dirt as a backstop. Ridge Circle Elementary School is less than a block away from the crime scene.
