Lake County Sheriff’s deputies responded about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday April 22, 2019 to a basement apartment at a house in the block of 26200 North Hickory Avenue, unincorporated Mundelein, to a report of a man shot.
Sheriff’s Deputies upon arrival found a 22-year-old resident of the home injured with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was listed in serious condition.
Preliminary investigation shows the man was shot while in his basement-level bedroom by someone who fired a handgun through a window from outside of the residence. Police do not believe the shooting was a drive-by shooting.
Police suspect the shooting was gang-related and the victim was the intended target. No suspects were in custody as of Tuesday afternoon.
The incident in a neighborhood near Route 83/Route 60 also just south of Diamond Lake, remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division. Anyone with information is urged to call Lake County Sheriff’s Detectives at 847-377-4424 or Lake County CrimeStoppers at 847-662-2222.
