Joliet police still are trying to track down the suspect or suspects who shot and wounded a 24-year-old man after pulling up to his car and firing multiple rounds.
Joliet police Sgt. Christopher Botzum said in an email Thursday that the victim and witnesses were “unable to provide more information” as to who the suspect or suspects were in the incident that occurred about 2 p.m. Feb. 13 at the intersection of Jefferson Street and Raynor Avenue.
On that day, officers were flagged down at Jefferson and Center streets about a person who had been shot. The victim was taken to Amita Health Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet for treatment.
During the course of the investigation, officers determined that a car had pulled alongside the victim’s vehicle at Jefferson Street and Raynor Avenue, Botzum said. A person from the vehicle that pulled up then fired into the victim’s vehicle, resulting in him suffering a gunshot wound to the torso.
Botzum said the injuries “did not appear to be life-threatening.”
He said all the police know so far is that the suspect’s vehicle is a maroon SUV. They do not have a make or model.
Botzum said surveillance video was viewed in the area around the time of the incident, but the video footage did not provide any useful information.
