Sheriff’s Police Investigating Lockport Township Homicide

Will County Sheriff

On 02/08/2024, shortly after 7:00 PM, deputies with the Will County Sheriff’s Office were sent to 200 Block of Riverview Avenue in Unincorporated Lockport Township for a shooting.

When deputies arrived, they located a male (age 55) laying near the front door of the residence who had been shot. Deputies also located a second victim (age 52) laying on the ground near the other victim.

Responding deputies began to perform life saving measures on the two victims until Lockport Township Fire Emergency Medical Services arrived. Both victims were taken to a local area hospital for injuries sustained in the shooting. The fifty-five-year-old victim has undergone surgery and is listed in critical condition.

The fifty-two-year-old victim would later succumb to his injuries at the hospital. The identity of this victim is being withheld until notification can be made to the family and upon conclusion of his autopsy.

Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) were summoned to the scene to begin to conduct the investigation into this deadly shooting. Witnesses reported hearing five to six gunshots being fired by unknown individuals.

It was reported to detectives that the two men had just arrived at the residence from returning from a local grocery store. As they approached the front of the residence, shots were fired from an unknown person. It appears that this was an isolated incident, and the attack was targeted.
