2 People Found Shot to Death in Buffalo Grove Parking Garage: Police

Investigators said they believe the shooting was targeted and there is not an active threat to the community

Two people were found dead in a parking garage in a northern Chicago suburb Sunday in what police believe was a targeted shooting by a gunman who remains on the loose.

The shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. in a parking garage at 150 Lake Boulevard in Buffalo Grove, police said. Their bodies were found roughly three hours later, when a resident discovered a man and a woman near a vehicle with blood on the ground and alerted authorities, police said. 

According to Buffalo Grove Police Chief Steven Casstevens, the pair were shot at close range, but the identities of the victims were not being released Monday morning, pending next-of-kin notification.

The gunman is described as a man, possibly in his 60s, who was wearing dark clothing, a dark jacket and a dark baseball-style hat.

Investigators said they believe the shooting was targeted and there is not an active threat to the community. 

Police said a suspect was captured on video entering the garage on foot and leaving through a side door following the incident. The video footage was not released as of Monday morning, but police were canvassing the area in search of additional camreas "that might shed some more light on this," Casstevens said. 

Authorities were also seen searching a pond in the area, looking for a potential weapon that may have been tossed into the water, Casstevens said. 

Anyone with information on what might have happened is being asked to call (847) 459-2560 or submit an anonymous tip at (847) 662-2222 and at lakecountycrimestoppers.com.
