[ARCHIVED] Beach Park Shooting Investigation

On July 26, 2022, at approximately 1:15 p.m. Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a business parking lot in the 38900 block of North Lewis Avenue, Beach Park, for a report of a shooting, where at least one person was shot.  Sheriff’s deputies arrived quickly, however, no victims were at the scene.  An additional responding deputy located a vehicle pulled to the side of the road in the area of Wadsworth Road and Gabriel Avenue, Beach Park.  Inside the vehicle three people were located with gunshot wounds.

Preliminary investigation shows the three victims met the shooting suspect in the parking lot of the above business.  They spoke for a period of time and an argument erupted.  Before the offender fled in a separate vehicle, he fired numerous shots at the victims, striking them, as they were in their vehicle.  The victims then fled from the scene in their vehicle just before deputies arrived.

Two of the shooting victims were adult men, one remains in critical condition and one remains in serious condition.  One of the victims is an adult woman, she remains in stable condition.  All three were transported to area hospitals via ambulance.

Based on the investigative facts at this time, this does not appear to be a gang-related shooting.    

Sheriff’s detectives continue to actively investigate the incident.  Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 847-377-4250 or contact Lake County CrimeStoppers at: http://www.lakecountycrimestoppers.com/
