DuPage County Sheriff’s deputies responded about 3:30 a.m. Friday September 28, 2018 to a report of possible shots fired at Bella One, a massage parlor located at 25W319 Lake Street in unincorporated DuPage County. A male body was found by DuPage County Sheriff’s deputies at the scene of the shots fired call.
An image from ABC 7 Chicago’s Chopper 7HD over the scene after sunrise Friday morning showed that the victim’s body was at the bottom of a set of stairs on the north side of the 2-story building leading to an entrance where Bella One is located.
Sgt. Robert Harris, public information officer for the sheriff’s office reported Friday morning that the victim suffered gunshot wounds after a fight involving a customer and a security guard. The victim’s identity was not initially released.
A suspect or person of interest was contacted by the DuPage County Sheriff’s office, and was taken into custody for questioning and investigation.
DuPage County Sheriff’s Office classified the case as an “isolated incident” and an investigation is underway.
The shooting is the second fatal shooting along Lake Street since June 3, 2018 when Sanchez Townes-Elliot was shot to death inside a basement recording studio at 24W713 Lake Street. After Dupage County Sheriff’s detectives worked with the U.S. Marshals Service and the Baltimore County Sheriff’s Office, a 30-year-old Oak Park male suspect was apprehended. Suspect Owen Reneau, who fled Illinois to the Baltimore area, was arrested in a suburb of Baltimore, and was charged with murder by July 3, 2018. Reneau was extradited to Illinois.
The June 3, 2018 shooting, classified an “isolated incident” by DuPage County Sheriff’s Office, occurred at the recording studio at a building 500 feet east of Bella One. The building address at 24W713 Lake Street for the recording studio also has a history of adult entertainment activity with a street sign displaying “24 Hour Adult Fun”.
The unincorporated area just south of Roselle and Hanover Park, and just north of the Village of Bloomingdale in Bloomingdale Township.
