Naperville shooting: 1 suspect in custody, another at large after man shot at home

Residents in suburban Naperville found themselves temporarily under shelter-in-place orders, and several schools were placed on lockdown following a shooting incident on Tuesday afternoon.

Naperville police responded to a call at approximately 1:30 p.m. reporting a gunshot victim at a residence in the 2500 block of Leach Drive.

The victim, identified as a 22-year-old man, sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Preliminary investigations suggest that two individuals, known to the victim, visited the victim's residence, resulting in the victim sustaining a gunshot wound to the leg. The offenders fled the scene on foot shortly afterward.

Following an extensive search, authorities apprehended and arrested a juvenile suspect. The individual was subsequently transferred to the River Valley Juvenile Detention Center and appeared at a detention hearing the following morning, facing charges of aggravated robbery.

While one suspect is in custody, efforts to locate the second alleged offender remain ongoing.

Investigators have indicated that the shooting does not appear to be a random occurrence.

Reports from the scene depicted blood and what appeared to be cash were scattered in the garage, leaving nearby residents deeply unsettled. This incident comes as a shock to many in Naperville, a city recently lauded for its low crime rates.

Expressing their concerns, residents emphasized the unusual nature of such events in Naperville, highlighting the community's sense of security.

"This kind of stuff doesn't happen in Naperville, that's why we're so concerned," one resident said.

Another resident, Callie Stone, said she heard at least one gunshot before seeing her neighbor call for help.

"He was just screaming for help. I just saw him hopping around in distress," Stone said.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Naperville Police Department Investigations Division at 630-548-2955.
