A 27-year-old man was wounded in a shooting on Joliet’s west side, and one resident captured the incident on their outdoor surveillance camera.

Officers responded to the 100 block of Key Court in connection with the shooting and saw a Chevrolet Impala leave the scene at a high rate of speed, according to a statement from Joliet police Sgt. Dwayne English.

Key Court is almost a mile west of Ascension Saint Joseph – Joliet hospital on the city’s west side.

Officers followed the vehicle to that hospital and saw a driver go inside the building, English said. Officers met with the 27-year-old driver and learned that he was shot in the chest and right leg.

English said officers believe he was shot while in or near a vehicle in the 100 block of Key Court. The victim is in stable condition.

A residence in Key Court was damaged by gunfire, English said. No other injuries were reported in the shooting.

Several residents at Key Court told the Herald-News that they heard multiple gunshots about 2 a.m. Tuesday.

The shooting was captured on an outdoor surveillance camera of the home of one resident who declined to be named.

“It is kind of crazy because it is a quiet neighborhood. We get a lot of kids playing here,” the resident said.

Several children were riding around the cul-de-sac on rollerblades Tuesday afternoon.

One of those children told the resident, “I heard gunshots, and they woke me up.”

The 44-second video showed a vehicle pull into the driveway of that resident’s next-door neighbor’s house. A second vehicle pulls into the cul-de-sac and then circled around the neighborhood.

Two people exited from the second vehicle after it parked. The two people jogged over to the first vehicle and began shooting at it when it pulled off the driveway.

The first vehicle then slammed into a fire hydrant and its trunk popped open from the impact. One of those two people continued to fire shots at the vehicle while scurrying back to their own vehicle.
