Schaumburg police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 5:19 PM Monday August 14, 2017 to a shooting, attempted homicide near the Walgreens entrance at the northwest corner of Wise Road and Roselle Road Schaumburg, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a shooting occurred and that a man was down in the street.
Witnesses on the scene said a man was shot in the Walgreen store’s parking lot near the entrance. Witnesses said the man ran into the right, southbound lane of Roselle before collapsing.
On Monday Schaumburg Police said the shooting victim was in his 30s or 40s, and had a gunshot wound to his chest.
Also on Monday, police said the victim and shooter knew each other, and that the shooting was not random. Police said one or two suspects were involved in the shooting, but did not provide descriptions Monday.
A police radio report stated that two homicide suspects were described fleeing, possibly in a white GMC SUV.
The suspects were described as …
#1) a male/black, age 35 short hair, blue T-shirt armed with a handgun, and
#2) a female/black with long black hair with red tips, walking in the area.
Schaumburg police were gathering evidence and focusing on the parking lot just east of the Walgreens building and the right lane of southbound Roselle Road about 200 feet north of Wise Road. Police, wearing nitrile gloves, picked an object out of the shrubs and placed it in a large paper bag, and labeled the bag.
Evidence markers were placed in the southbound, right lane of Roselle Road, also about 200 feet north of Wise Road, where a pickup truck was stopped. It appeared that the driver of the pickup truck may have stopped when the victim ran out into Roselle Road.
Roselle Road was shut down in both directions north of Wise Road. Yellow crime tape was placed about a large perimeter around the east parking lot and south parking lot of Walgreens, and about a section of Jewel grocery parking lot across the street.
Some or all of the Walgreens employees were inside the building in “lock down” for at least an hour, according to a friend of one of the employees, who was standing outside near the Walgreens.
