Man shot to death during party in Lake Forest

LAKE FOREST (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A man was shot to death early Sunday during a party in north suburban Lake Forest.

Officers responded about 12:05 a.m. to a report of shots fired and found “numerous people fleeing a large house party” in the 1300 block of West Estate Lane East in Lake Forest, according to a statement from the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.

A man was found dead with a gunshot wound outside of the home, the statement said. An autopsy at the Lake County coroner’s office was scheduled for Monday.
