Five injured in mass shooting at home in Wheeling


WHEELING, Fig. (TBEN) – Five people were injured after a shooting in the northern suburb of Wheeling Saturday morning.

All five people, ages 28 to 30, were hospitalized around 5 a.m. after someone fired shots at a house in the 800 block of Fletcher, according to Wheeling Police.

Police said the group started the night at a restaurant in Prospect Heights, not far from where the shooting took place. There they got into an argument and a group left for the house in Wheeling.

The owner of the bar insists that no argument, argument or argument of any kind took place before the group left the bar and that it had nothing to do with the matter. TBEN 2 does not list the name of the company, as police confirm that the shooting happened just in front of the house in Wheeling.

“I saw the fire truck and ambulance running and knew something had happened,” said a neighbor whose bedroom is right next to the shooting scene.

He said he is too concerned to share his name until police make arrests.

“I’ve been here for 30 years and it probably won’t happen again in the next 30 years,” he said.

Later, someone fired shots into the house, hitting the five victims.

Friends of the victims told TBEN 2’s Sabrina Franza that all victims are expected to recover. Four of them were even released from hospital on Saturday.
