Villa Park police are actively searching for a suspect in a shooting at Safari Land Saturday evening. YouTube Tips ⓘ
Police and paramedics from Villa Park responded about 7:00 p.m. Saturday, November 13, 2021 to a shooting at Safari Land, 701 West North Avenue in Villa Park. On arrival police discovered one male shooting victim and secured the scene as they assessed that the shooter had fled the scene.
UPDATE: Male suspect taken into custody in Chicago around 3:00 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 14
Police described the suspect as a male/black, wearing a black jacket with white writing, blue jeans, and a black baseball cap. The suspect was seen running into the residential area near Lincoln and Roy, and was also possibly seen running eastbound on Plymouth from Yale Street.
A Ring video at 6:59 p.m. captured an image of a male/black subject walking through a backyard, wearing a dark jacket with white lettering across the chest and a large logo similar to the Las Vegas Raiders logo that was visible on the back of the jacket. The jacket also had a white band at the bottom of the jacket near the waist line, and white near the collar area of the jacket. He was carrying a GAP store shopping bag (dark bag with white GAP letters) and a white or light colored bag in his right hand. He was also wearing (backwards) a dark baseball cap with white or light lettering. While walking in the backyard, the subject stopped suddenly — apparently to prevent being seen at an opening at the driveway and wait for a car to pass on the street.
At 10:06 p.m. Saturday Villa Park stated on their official Facebook page that the police department believes the suspect had left the area.
Police reported that one male victim was shot three times, and is being treated at a local hospital. His injuries are initially believed to be non-life-threatening. Police said the shooting appeared to be an isolated incident Saturday night.
