Skokie Police Officers responded on Sunday, September 28, 2014, at approximately 9:41 p.m. to a 9-1-1 call of shots fired in the 9200 block of Kedvale Avenue, Skokie, Illinois. A 17-year-old male identified as Maxwell L. Gadau and 17-year-old female juvenile, both of Skokie, were found with gunshot wounds and transported to Evanston Hospital. Gadau was pronounced dead and the female juvenile remains hospitalized.
