[ARCHIVED] Lake County Sheriff’s Office Investigating Homicide in Unincorporated Gurnee

On May 29, 2020, at approximately 9:50PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 36900 block of North Grandwood Drive, Unincorporated Gurnee, for a report of a man shot.  Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene and located a 21-year-old man, of the 36900 block of North Grandwood Drive, who sustained a gunshot wound.

The victim was unresponsive, and sheriff’s deputies attempted lifesaving efforts on him.  Paramedics arrived and transported the victim to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where he was subsequently pronounced deceased.

Preliminary investigation shows the victim met with another person near the roadway, close to the victim’s residence.  The person the victim met with then shot the victim.  The offender fled from the scene following the shooting.  The victim was likely acquainted with the offender and this was not a random act.

The Lake County Coroner’s Office responded to Advocate Condell Medical Center and is in the process of scheduling an autopsy on the victim.  

The investigation continues by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.
