1 dead, 1 seriously injured following shooting, crash in Waukegan

A Park City man is dead and a Waukegan man is seriously injured following a shooting and crash in Waukegan early Sunday.

The Waukegan Police Department responded at 3:45 a.m. to a report of a vehicle that crashed into the front yard of a house in the 300 block of Franklin Street.

When police officers arrived they found the driver, 25-year-old Devante Flowers of Park City, with a gunshot wound.

Flowers was transported by the Waukegan Fire Department to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. The Lake County Coroner’s Office was called and responded to the scene and hospital.

A passenger who was in the car, a Waukegan man in his 20’s, showed up 15 minutes later at an area hospital with a gunshot wound. The man has serious injuries but is expected to survive, police said.

An autopsy performed Monday on Flowers showed that he died from injuries sustained from the gunshot wound, Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper said. Toxicology results are pending and his family has been notified.
