A male victim was shot after a gunman opened fire multiple times on his vehicle in Waukegan Thursday evening shortly before a second male victim was also found shot in Waukegan.
The Waukegan Police Department responded around 11:40 p.m. Thursday to the 1400 block of Brookside Avenue in Waukegan for a call of shots fired.
Officers responding were soon told a person had been shot at the scene.
Officers learned the victim was sitting in a vehicle in the driveway of a home on the block, according to a police report.
A male subject was seen walking up while armed with a gun.
The victim reversed his car out of the driveway and crashed into another vehicle, the report said.
The suspect began shooting and the victim was struck once in his arm by a bullet.
He was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with non-life-threatening injuries.
Detectives found several shell casings and found the victim’s vehicle had been struck multiple times by gunfire.
The Waukegan Police Department responded shortly after around 12:05 a.m. Friday to a report of a gunshot victim who showed up at Vista Medical Center East, 1324 North Sheridan Road in Waukegan.
Officers spoke to the male subject who claimed the shooting happened on Green Bay Road, the report said.
He then said the shooting occurred on a bike path near the 200 block of North Butrick Street, which is near the shooting that occurred on Brookside Avenue.
The male victim changed the location again and said it happened near the gas station on the corner of Grand Avenue and Jackson Street.
He said he was picked up and dropped off at the hospital by another man.
It is unclear whether the two victims were shot in the same shooting or whether they were wounded in different incidents.
The cases remain under investigation by the Waukegan Police Department.
