Woman Hit by Gunfire as Suspected Gang Members Shoot at Each Other on Golf Rd Near Route 53, Rolling Meadows

Rolling Meadows police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 2:34 AM Sunday to a report of a person shot in a parking lot at the Capital One Finance, 3800 Golf Road Rolling Meadows, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a man was shot. Upon arrival, police and firefighter/paramedics learned that a female was shot in the leg.

Rolling Meadows police report they are investigating a suspected gang-related exchange of gunfire between passengers in moving vehicles early Sunday morning. A young female teen or adult passenger was hit in the leg by a bullet during the exchange.

Police said the shooting occurred about 2:30 a.m. along Golf Road, just west of Interstate 90; however police appeared to be looking for evidence east of the Capital One Finance building closer to the Extended Stay America motel building.

Responding officers were told gang members in the two cars were involved in an exchange of gunfire after they drove under the I-90 overpass on Golf Road. Apparently one vehicle -- a blue Jeep Cherokee -- was driven eastbound on Golf Road, while the other vehicle was driven into the Capital One west parking lot at 3800 Golf Road. Police did not specify what direction the two vehicles were traveling when the exchange of gunfire occurred.

Police also did not specify how many vehicle occupants were in each vehicle.

No physical description of the shooter was available, and it was not confirmed whether or not any of the occupants of either vehicle fled on foot in the area.

A young female passenger in a crossover SUV was discovered with a bullet wound to her leg. She was transported by Rolling Meadows Fire Department ambulance to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge with a non-life-threatening injury.

An initial police investigation indicated at least five shots were fired during the exchange, and one gun was recovered on the scene. Police did not specify where the gun was discovered. The passenger side of the crossover SUV appeared to have been hit by five bullets.

There did not appear to be any K-9 search in the area. The Busse Woods Forest Preserve is located just south of Golf Road from Route 53 to Interstate 90. Golf Road was blocked for more than two hours during the search for evidence. Initially only eastbound Golf Road was blocked, but after about an hour, Golf Road was blocked in both directions.

The shooting remains under investigation, police said, and no charges have been filed.
