Police are investigating after a gunman fired over a dozen rounds from possibly an AR-15 rifle in front of a subdivision in Antioch late Tuesday evening.

The Antioch Police Department responded around 11:50 p.m. Tuesday to the area of the Trevor Creek subdivision near Trevor Road and Kennedy Drive for a call of shots fired.

Officers spent the early morning hours canvassing the area where a total of 16 spent .223 shell casings were located.

That type of ammunition is commonly associated with an AR-15 rifle, police said.

A further investigation found no reports of any gunshot victims at area hospitals or any damage that could have happened as a result of the shooting.

Investigators are working to identify the suspect or suspects and to determine a motive for why the rounds were fired, police said.

Antioch Police Chief Geoffrey Guttschow said he is thankful for the help the police department has already received from area residents who assisted officers in identifying the location of the shooting.

“I want to reassure our residents that we believe this to be an isolated incident,” Guttschow said.

“We are asking anyone who may have heard the gunshots or who might have additional information related to the incident to contact the Antioch Police Department,” he added.

Anyone who may have heard or seen suspicious activity around the Trevor Creek subdivision or nearby in Kenosha County along Rock Lake Road is asked to call the Antioch Police Department dispatch center at 847-270-9111 or email crime@antioch.il.gov.

Residents with surveillance video are also asked to review their footage for anything that could assist in the investigation.
