Palatine police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 10:51 AM Friday to a report of a shooting in the block of 1100 E Randville Dr, (In This Block). Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that two people were shot in the street.

The offender or offenders fled scene, possibly westbound on Randville Drive. Two teen victims were down in the street near the curb. Witnesses said they were sitting under a pine tree when possibly five to eight teens or young adults approached briskly, and fired shots. Witnesses heard five to six shots.

The group with the offender(s) were described as at least two males and three females, wearing backpacks. One witness said they ran west, and another witness said they ran east after the shots were fired.

A second ambulance was immediately dispatched at 10:53 a.m. — Ambulance 83 was assigned.

Saleha Masood heard five shots, but didn’t see the shooters. She looked outside and saw two teens down in the street. She rushed downstairs and brought some water to help the shooting victims. She said one of the victims had three gunshot wounds and that his leg was broken. She could see the shaft of his bone exposed. She said she helped put something on his wounds to control the bleeding.

Saleha Masood said both victims were conscious and were male/Hispanics speaking Spanish. She described the victims as high school kids.

One shooting victim was transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. the other shooting victim was transported to Northwest Community Hospital.

Arlington Heights police assisted with a K-9 unit, as Palatine police investigated the scene and worked to gather evidence.
