The Elk Grove Village Fire Department Communications van remained on the scene and another vehicle — possibly a fire department rescue squad — also remained on the scene for lighting.

The crime scene is under investigation, and Brantwood Avenue will be blocked much of the night. Neighbors arriving home were guided by police officers to their homes while avoiding the crime scene.

Several neighbors reported hearing the shot or shots fired. One man on the west end of Brantwood Avenue said he heard the shots at 5:58 p.m. — saying he looked at his clock an noted the time. He said initially he wasn’t sure they were shots. One neighbor said that the mailman that was shot was not the regular neighborhood mailman. Police did not initially release any information at the scene. A male, who appeared to be connected to someone involved in the shooting incident, arrived on the scene on the east end of Brantwood Avenue about 7:00 p.m. and was asking police what happened.

Elk Grove Village Police Department advised they will keep residents informed of developments as the investigation continues. Investigators ask that anyone who may have seen or heard anything unusual, or has any information about this incident to contact Elk Grove Village Police Investigator McIntyre at 847-357-4100.
