[ARCHIVED] Unincorporated Gurnee Aggravated Battery

On September 5, 2019, at approximately 5:00PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 17700 block of West Horseshoe Lane, Unincorporated Gurnee, for a report of a shots fired.  

Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and found the victim, a 17-year-old male who lived at the address of occurrence, sustained non-life-threatening injuries from a physical altercation with two unknown subjects.  Nobody was shot during the incident.  

Further investigation shows the victim was speaking with two males who arrived in a silver Honda Accord.  The males were possibly of Hispanic descent, in their late teens or early twenties.  They were speaking with the victim just outside or inside the residence.

A fight between the three ensured, and someone produced a firearm.  The firearm was discharged, but nobody was struck.  The two males who arrived in the Honda fled from the scene.

Sheriff’s Detectives continue to investigate, however, based on the information obtained thus far, this does not appear to be a random incident.
