Police in Huntley ask residents to check their doorbell and security cameras for a suspect and a vehicle believed involved in an early morning shooting Monday that left two men hospitalized.

According to police, the two victims are family members; one 58 years old and one 29 years old. Deputy Chief of Police Linda Hooten said in an email Monday night that the 58-year-old was out of surgery and the younger man was listed in stable condition.

A third person in the home at the time of the shooting called 911, Hooten said.

A motive is unknown at this time, but there does appear to be a connection between one of the victims and the suspect, Hooten said in the email.

According to police, the suspect fled the scene in a white four-door sedan, police said.

Residents in the Wing Pointe subdivision should review their doorbell and security cameras from the early morning hours for any footage that might assist in this investigation, Hooten said. Police officials said the shooting happened about 4:20 a.m. and the offender fled the home on 11800 block of Cape Cod Lane before they arrived and remains on the loose.

A preliminary investigation indicates the suspect drove up to the house and approached the front door before opening fire, striking the two men who were transported to a hospital for treatment.

Police said the shooter targeted the home and its occupants.

Police said the suspect’s white vehicle was located and the driver may have been involved in a carjacking in Bartlett. The Bartlett Police Department is investigating that incident, Hooten said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to contact Huntley police at 847-515-5311 or anonymously at 847-515-5333.
