Investigation underway after 2 injured in early morning shootings in Joliet


JOLIET, Ill. — An investigation is underway after two people were found with gunshot wounds in Joliet early Saturday morning. 

According to Joliet police, officers were first called to an apartment complex in the 300 block of North Broadway Street just after 5:30 a.m., on reports that a person had been shot in the area.

When officers arrived on the scene, they located a 28-year-old man who had been shot in the leg. Police say the man then told officers that he had been shot by an unknown individual near the third-floor hallway of the apartment complex. 

While officers were on the scene, they found a 45-year-old man, who had also been shot in the leg, across the street. 

Police say the second victim was uncooperative, told officers that he had no knowledge of the other shooting, and refused to provide police any further information.
