Bolingbrook police arrest shooter on the run
BOLINGBROOK — Police reportedly found a shooter running from the scene Friday night.
At 8:10 p.m. police were called to a parking lot on Beaconridge Drive after witnesses reported hearing shots and “a subject on the ground with several people on top of him,” Lt. Mike Rompa said.
A responding officer reportedly saw Guadalupe Gavin, 19, running nearby on Route 53 and found he was carrying a .25-caliber handgun.
Rompa said it was unknown if anyone was hit by the shots as “several subjects were observed fleeing the area prior to police arrival.”
Guadalupe, of 209 N. Lancaster Drive, was booked into the county jail on charges of aggravated discharge of firearm, unlawful use of a weapon and unauthorized possession of a firearm.
