The coroner has identified a 21-year-old Zion woman who was gunned down in a Zion alley during a targeted attack.
An autopsy showed Kamryn Dussault, 21, of Zion, died as a result of a gunshot wound, Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper told Lake and McHenry County Scanner.
The Zion Police Department responded shortly before 4:30 a.m. April 26 to the emergency room at Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.
Officers met with the ER staff and learned that Dussault was brought to the hospital with serious injuries after suffering a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Officers learned that the shooting took place outside in the 2300 block of Jethro Avenue in Zion. Officers and detectives responded to the scene to collect evidence, Zion police said in a statement Sunday morning.
Dussault was pronounced dead around 1:30 p.m. April 27, officials said.
The Lake County Major Crime Task Force is also assisting in the investigation due to the seriousness of the incident, Zion Police Chief Kirk Henderson said.
Lake County Major Crime Task Force Spokesman Christopher Covelli said that Dussault was sitting in a vehicle in the alley near a residence when she was specifically targeted by the gunman.
No arrests have been made yet but Task Force investigators and Zion detectives continue to make progress in the investigation, Covelli said.
“We do not believe there is a threat to the community at large, this appears to be very targeted,” he said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Zion Police Department at 847-872-8000 or Lake County Crime Stoppers at 847-662-2222.
