PRESS RELEASE


On Sunday, November 4, 2018 at approximately 1813 hours the Frankfort Police Department responded to the 19900 block of Lily Court reference a 17 year old male juvenile with a gunshot wound to the chest. Upon the arrival of Frankfort Police Officers and Frankfort Fire Paramedics life-saving efforts were initiated. The juvenile victim was transported by Frankfort Fire Ambulance to Silver Cross Hospital where he was later pronounced deceased by medical staff. 

 

Through the course of investigation it was learned the juvenile victim was visiting a 17 year old male juvenile friend at the Lily Court residence. The juveniles had in their possession a .357 revolver and several rounds of live ammunition. While the juveniles were handling the firearm, one live round discharged and struck the juvenile victim. An 18 year old adult male at the residence learned of the incident, contacted 911, and began CPR until the arrival of first responders. Frankfort Police Evidence Technicians were able to collect several pieces of evidence, including the firearm and ammunition.

 

At this time, the investigation remains very active with pathology and crime lab reports pending. The Will-Grundy Major Crimes Task Force is assisting in the investigation. The initial findings of this case were presented to the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office and they approved charges of Unlawful Use of Weapon (UUW) against the 17 year old friend. The 17 year old was later transferred to the River Valley Juvenile Detention Facility in Joliet, Illinois to await a hearing.

 

At present, the matter is still under investigation and additional information may be released at a later time. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Frankfort Police Department at 815-469-9435.
