Crest Hill Police asking for the public’s help in solving the murder of a 30-year-old male found shot to death in a vehicle in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Police Chief Ed Clark tells WJOL that police responded to a call of shots fired on Monday, January 13th at 6 a.m. in the 17-hundred block of Arbor Lane. Clark says when they arrived on the scene they found a male inside a vehicle riddled with gunshots. Clark would comment on how many shots were fired due to the ongoing investigation.

Police are speaking with several witnesses and reviewing surveillance video. Chief Clark is not releasing the type of vehicle found at the scene, nor where the victim was found within the vehicle. This is the third shooting in Crest Hill over the last 6 months.

Clark is looking to see if these shootings are connected.
