On August 9, 2022, at approximately 9:50 p.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 1800 block of Pheasant Run, Long Grove, for a report of shots fired. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and learned nobody was shot during the incident, however a handgun was discharged.
Preliminary investigation shows two teenage victims, a female and a male, pulled into the driveway of Vladan Mihailovic, 55, of the 1800 block of Pheasant Run. The teens were trying to go to a friend’s home, who lived next door, but they did not realize they pulled into the wrong driveway. They were approached by Mihailovic, who demanded to know why they were in his driveway. The teens attempted to explain, however, Mihailovic became loud, argumentative, and told them to leave his property. The teens began driving out of the driveway and Mihailovic produced a firearm. He then fired two shots from the firearm.
The teens initially fled from the area, but then drove to their friend’s home. They met with sheriff’s deputies shortly after deputies arrived in the area.
The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the circumstances surrounding the investigation and Mihailovic was subsequently charged with reckless discharge of a firearm (class 4 felony).
Mihailovic remains held in the Lake County Jail pending an initial court hearing this morning.
All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
