Some police officers were already scene reporting they located a shooting victim with a gunshot wound in the chest, and a gunshot wound in the leg. Hoffman Estates police officers administered emergency first aid treatment to the 17 year-old gunshot victim, who was was discovered in the lawn in front of a townhouse in the block of 1700 Queensbury Circle in Hoffman Estates.

A 9-1-1 caller said that a subject had been shot and that the driver of a vehicle possibly involved in the shooting had fled the scene. A witness in the neighborhood also said that he believed a vehicle was involved when shots were heard, but said he couldn’t get a good look at the vehicle.

Police officers, with reason to believe there might have been a second shooting victim, checked nearby hospital to find out whether any shooting victims arrived. According to the Hoffman Estates Police Department, police officers located a vehicle with multiple bullet holes in the parking lot of one of the hospitals. Then police officers located a second shooting victim, who was reported to have been a passenger in the vehicle with the bullet holes. The second victim located was found to have suffered a graze wound in his back. The male, age 18, was treated and released from the hospital, and was taken into custody by the Hoffman Estates Police Department.

Two additional suspects were taken into custody, but the Hoffman Estates Police Department did not disclose where the other two suspects were located when they were taken into custody.
