CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Kane County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) and Aurora responded about 11:47 a.m. Monday October 17, 2017 to high-speed fatal crash that involved a semi-trailer truck and two vehicles near the exits from Interstate 88 to Orchard Road. The two vehicles — a Jaguar and GMC Envoy SUV struck the semi-trailer truck as the truck’s driver was turning southbound on Orchard Road from the westbound exit ramp from I-88.

Two men died and three others were injured after two cars crashed at high speed into a semi-truck in Aurora. Police suspect the fatal crash may have resulted from a case of roving shots fired between two of the crashed vehicles — the passenger vehicles.



Police report that the driver of the Jaguar — the only occupant of the vehicle — was transported to an Aurora hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The GMC Envoy was occupied by a driver and two passengers. The driver, Christopher Shaw, age 23, was pronounced dead at the scene. Both passengers were airlifted to a Chicago area hospital with life-threatening injuries.

One of the airlifted passengers, Devonte Bouchee, age 24, died at the hospital.

The semi-trailer truck driver was transported to an area hospital with injuries initially believed to be non-life threatening.

North Aurora Fire Department activated a MABAS Division 13 Box Alarm for heavy extrication. At least one of the patients in the GMC Envoy wasn’t removed by extrication until possibly about 1:05 p.m. (not confirmed by authorities).

The Kane County Sheriff’s Office and Aurora Police are currently investigating two separate reports of shots fired in the Aurora area that were reported prior to the fatal crash. Kane County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) and Aurora police are investigating the crash for connection to the earlier shots fired incidents that involved moving vehicles with the discharge of weapons.

KCSO responded at 11:04 a.m. Monday October 17, 2017 to Konen Avenue near Arlene Street in unincorporated Kane County to a report of shots fired from vehicles.

Aurora police responded about 11:45 a.m. October 17, 2017 to a report of shots fired from vehicles at Nantucket and Durham near Indian Trail, which is about 3.8 miles away, or 9 minutes from the crash scene at normal speeds

Both of the earlier reports involved vehicles chasing each other and shots being exchanged between the vehicles. There was no discovery of anything hit in Konen Avenue area. However, two homes in the Aurora area were hit by bullets — one in the block of 1200 Morton Avenue; and one in the block of 800 block Old Indian Trail. Projectile damage was discovered, but no injuries were reported.

No suspects were in custody Monday night.

Police urge anyone with information connecting the crash to the earlier shootings to call Kane County Sheriff’s Investigators at 630-444-1103 or Aurora Police Investigations at 630-256-5500.

Aurora Crime Stoppers may also be called at Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at 630-892-1000.
