Saturday, November 20, 2021, at approximately 12:05 a.m., a 22-year-old man of Waukegan drove to Vista East Medical Center in Waukegan. The man drove there because the passenger in his vehicle, a 22-year-old man of Waukegan, had just been shot, and the driver was seeking medical attention for the victim. The victim succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased after being brought into the emergency room.
Further investigation by police revealed the victim was shot while he was seated as a front-seat passenger in a vehicle in the area of Waveland Avenue and Grandview Avenue in Gurnee. Gurnee Police Officers located the scene and contacted the Lake County Major Crime Task Force to assist with the investigation.
The driver was driving in a reckless manner just prior to the shooting, and based on preliminary information it appears the shooting may have been the result of a road-rage incident. Following his reckless driving, the driver turned onto Waveland Avenue and began to slow down, when a vehicle pulled behind him and an occupant or occupants of the vehicle began shooting at the victims. One of the rounds struck the passenger. The driver and the shooting victim were the only two occupants in the victims’ vehicle.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office has scheduled an autopsy for the victim on Monday, November 22, 2021.
This incident is being actively investigated by Gurnee Police Detectives and Lake County Major Crime Task Force Investigators. Anyone with any information is encouraged to call Gurnee Police at: 847-599-7000, or leave an anonymous tip with Lake County CrimeStoppers at 847-662-2222 / http://www.lakecountycrimestoppers.com/
