May 16, 2021 / Naperville Police investigate shooting

On Saturday, May 15, 2021, at approximately 5:39PM, officers from the Naperville Police Department responded to several 911 calls of shots fired in the 600 block of South Route 59 (near Aurora Avenue).

Witnesses reported one victim was struck and transported from the scene by unknown people prior to police arrival. Responding officers secured the area and attempts at locating a suspect where met with negative results.

During the initial investigation it was also learned that a citizen, who possessed a valid
Illinois Concealed Carry License, used their personal firearm to shoot at the suspect. After this occurred, the suspect fled the area.

A short time later, officers responded to an area hospital when it was learned the victim had arrived for treatment of non-life-threatening gunshot injuries.

The incident is under investigation and information has been developed to indicate the victim was likely targeted. A section of the retail property located in the 600 block of south Route 59 was blocked off for several hours while the scene was processed.

No other injuries were reported from this incident. It was also learned that there was an uninvolved, occupied vehicle that was struck during the gunfire. The lone occupant of that vehicle was not injured.

 Suspect description: Male, White or Hispanic, late teens or early 20’s, approximately 5’6”, wearing a dark hoody and dark ski mask. It is believed that the suspect fled the area in a yet-to-be-identified vehicle.

Individuals with additional information regarding this investigation are encouraged to contact the Naperville Police Department at (630) 420-6665. Ask for the Investigations Division.

The Naperville Police wish to remind the public and the news media that a charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

Again! If you have any information please contact CRIME STOPPERS AT 630-420-6006 or contact Crime Stoppers via www.napervillecrimestoppers.com.

Your information is important to Crime Stoppers and all callers may remain anonymous. A cash reward is being offered for the information that leads to an arrest in this incident.
