Lake County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene and located an unresponsive 21-year-old man, of the block of 36900 North Grandwood Drive, with a gunshot wound.
The victim was unresponsive, and sheriff’s deputies attempted lifesaving efforts on him. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office reported that paramedics arrived and transported the victim to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where he was subsequently pronounced deceased.
