A shooting in Shorewood on Monday night leaves a 36-year-old Plainfield man dead and a 28-year-old woman from Plainfield sustaining gunshot wounds. Shorewood Police Department officers responded to the 97000 block of the Northeast Frontage Road in the parking lot of La Quinta Inn & Suites for a shooting.

As officers arrived on the scene, they located a male and female victim in the parking lot, both of which sustained gunshot wounds. The male was pronounced dead at the scene, while the female in her late 20’s was transported to AMITA Saint Joseph’s Medical Center by Troy Fire Department Emergency Medical Services.
