(CBS) — Wauconda police hope security and red light cameras are able to help investigators find the three men responsible for shooting a man in the chest Sunday night.
Wauconda Police Chief Patrick Yost says a child answered the door about 8:30 last night to Apartment 4, a 2nd floor apartment at 105 South Main Street, which is right next to the Wauconda Village Hall.
Chief Yost says three young men believed to be in their early 20s burst through the door.
He says the victim’s girlfriend and her children, ages 7, 10 and 14, barricaded themselves in another room while the victim and the home invaders argued. A couple of minutes later, the chief says, the 26-year old boyfriend was shot in the chest and the three attackers left and drove away in a dark colored car.
