An 8-year-old and an adult were both transported to the hospital after they were wounded inside a home when a gunman fired shots in Round Lake Beach.
The Round Lake Beach Police Department received a 911 call around 8:39 p.m. Saturday for a report of shots fired in the 500 block of Meadow Green Lane.
Round Lake Beach Police Department Chief of Police Wayne Wilde Jr. said officers arrived and found two people who had been wounded.
An 8-year-old and a 26-year-old were suffering from non-life-threatening injuries.
Wilde said it is unclear at this time whether the victims were hit directly by a round of ammunition or if the bullet ricocheted and hit them.
The victims were both transported to an area hospital by paramedics.
Police are still investigating the incident and “all information at this point is extremely preliminary,” Wilde said.
The incident remains under investigation by the Round Lake Beach Police Department.
