Police are searching for multiple suspects after a woman was shot and had to be flown to the hospital Monday evening in Woodstock.

The Woodstock Police Department received a call around 10:30 p.m. Monday for a report of shots fired in the 1700 block of Yasgur Drive in Woodstock.

Responding officers arrived on the scene and located a woman who had sustained a gunshot wound to her shoulder, according to the police department.

Additional officers arrived on the scene and searched the area for possible suspects but were unable to locate them.

The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District transported the victim to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Woodstock.

She was then transported by a LifeStar medical helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

Police said they do not have an update on the victim’s medical condition.

The suspects then fired several rounds at the female victim and her acquaintance before fleeing the area in a white sedan, possibly a Cadillac CTS.

An alert sent out across the Illinois State Police Emergency Radio Network to area police departments said there were possibly at least four suspects involved, but police officials have not publicly confirmed that yet.

Police are still trying to determine if the incident was random or targeted.

Woodstock Mayor Mike Turner called the shooting “a very disturbing incident.”

“The Woodstock Police Department is actively working this case to learn more about the situation and to apprehend the perpetrators while working as they always do to protect the public,” Turner said.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is encouraged to call the Woodstock Police Department Investigation Division at 815-338-2131.
