Police and firefighter/paramedics from Rolling Meadows responded about 5:57 p.m Monday, March 30, 2020 to a report that a man was found unconscious with a gunshot wound.
Police and firefighter/paramedics arrived immediately and discovered a man down under some pine trees at the southeast corner of Kirchoff Road and Benton Street.
Several friends and relatives of the victim arrived as police investigated the scene, which was taped off with crime scene tape for a death investigation.
The Cook County Sheriff’s Office reported Sunday that they were looking for a missing man in this area. A Chicago Police helicopter was also performing an area search over this area earlier today. A friend of the missing man at the scene said the victim was the missing man.
Rolling Meadows Police Department officers were investigating, but did not initially confirm the victim was the missing man. No marked Cook County Sheriff’s Office police units were on the scene during the first hour of the investigation.
No officials initially confirmed that the victim suffered a gunshot wound.
The body was removed about 7:30 p.m., and all police cleared the scene by about 7:50 p.m., which indicates this incident is probably not a homicide.
