VIDEO: Drive-by shooting scene at apartment complex near North Green Lane North and Baldwin Road in Palatine.
Palatine police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:46 p.m. Sunday April 28, 2019 to a report of 12 year-old shot in the block of 1900 North Green Lane North. On arrival, Palatine police officers discovered that a 19-year-old male and a 15-year-old male were shot.
Police were initially dispatched at about 11:45 p.m. to the block of 1900 North Green Lane to a report of shots fired.
Both victims were transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. However, police say the boys’ injuries were initially believed to be nonlife-threatening.
Police said the shooting initially appears to be a targeted, isolated incident. The victims were outside an apartment building when an offender or offenders, who evidently knew them, pulled up in a car and opened fire before fleeing the scene, according to police.
Police were still on the scene investigating with crime scene tape up, and a tent set up apparently where the teens were shot.
As of Monday morning, no suspects were in custody in connection with the shooting, according to police.
