A person was hospitalized after being shot Thursday on the same residential block in Zion where a man was shot and killed last weekend, authorities said.
The Zion Police Department and Zion Fire and Rescue Department responded around 12:25 a.m. Thursday to the 2100 block of Bethesda Boulevard for a report of a shooting.
Officers arrived to find a gunshot victim and requested paramedics to expedite to the scene.
Paramedics transported the victim to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. Their condition was unknown but they did survive.
Zion Police Department Lt. Paul Kehrli said he did not have many details on the case but said investigators were not receiving much cooperation from the victim.
Last Sunday, the Zion Police Department responded to a few houses away, also in the 2100 block of Bethesda Boulevard, for a report of shots fired inside a residence.
Kehrli said officers arrived at the residence around 5:30 p.m. to find it was locked.
The officers knocked and received no answer from inside.
Kehrli said officers forced open the front door due to the credible report of shots fired and the need to check on the wellbeing of the occupants.
Desmond McDade, 30, of Zion, was found lying on the ground inside the home.
He had multiple gunshot wounds to his body and the wounds appeared to have just occurred, Kehrli said. No one else was inside the residence.
Kehrli said an adult male who lives at the residence was later located in Chicago and brought back to the Zion Police Department for questioning. No charges have been announced yet.
Anyone with information regarding either shooting is asked to call the Zion Police Department at 847-872-8000 or Lake County Crime Stoppers at 847-662-2222.
