Around 10 o’clock on Monday evening, deputies were called to a residence in Webber Township after a neighbour reported hearing gunshots coming from the direction of the residence.
The deputies entered the house and discovered three people inside, one of them was lying on the floor suffering from a head wound caused by a gunshot. Even though one person was providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to the sufferer, he was pronounced dead at the site.
On Monday night, another man who lived with the victim was taken into custody for impeding law enforcement.
According to Sheriff Richard Martin of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, “It does look suspicious at this point, so we’re actually looking into that to see if there’s anything else we need to work on, any other leads we need to explore, but that has yet to be determined precisely what transpired in that event.”
Although Sheriff Martin has stated that there is no danger to the community, he is requesting that anyone who may have any information regarding this incident call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at 231-745-2712.
