ZION, Ill. (CBS) — An 8-year-old boy was among four people who were wounded early Sunday in a shooting in Zion.
Zion police were called at 12:57 a.m. to the 2300 block of Joppa Avenue. They found two 28-year-old men with gunshot wounds to the abdomen, a 35-year-old man with a gunshot to the shoulder and leg, and an 8-year-old boy with a gunshot to the hand.
Police said a newer-model, dark-colored sport-utility vehicle with at least three people in it pulled by, and both the front- and back-seat passengers opened fire on the three adult victims, who were standing inside a home.
One of the rounds went into the home and struck the boy in his bedroom, police said.
The two 28-year-old men were taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville by Zion Fire & Rescue. Both underwent surgery and were in critical, but stable condition Sunday afternoon, police said.
The 35-year-old man was taken by a friend to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan, where he was treated and released. The boy was taken to the same hospital, where he was also treated and released.
Police said they found 15 .233-caliber shell casings, six .40-caliber shell casings, and six 9mm shell casings at the scene.
