A witness in the Clear Creek Bay neighborhood, which is just east of Baldwin Road and north of Dundee Road, said she initially hear a rapid firing of about 10 gunshots. She heard a woman screaming, and then heard two more shots. Apparently police located many shell casings at the northwest corner of Clear Creek Bay and Hidden Creek Circle — about 200 feet east of Baldwin Road, and about 2000 feet north of Dundee Road.
A secondary source told CARDINAL NEWS that the driver of a red Jeep arrived in the southeast parking lot area of the property of the Long Valley Apartments early Thursday morning. Initially, police have not confirmed whether the shooting victim drove himself in the Jeep, or was a passenger in the Jeep. The rear window of the window was shot out, according to the secondary source. The vehicle was towed away by police by around 10:00 a.m.
Long Valley Drive intersects with the west Frontage Road that runs parallel to the west side of Route 53. The second scene at Long Valley Drive was 600 feet north of the intersection of Frontage Road and Rand Road.
A thunderstorm with heavy rain passed over both scenes beginning around 6:30 a.m.
The Palatine Police Department continues to investigate, and is asking citizens with any information about the shooting or related circumstances to call the Palatine Police Department at 847-359-9000.
