One shot, another beaten in Plainfield home invasion

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

One person has been shot and another beaten in a home invasion in southwest suburban Plainfield.

The incident occurred on busy Route 126 on the 24000 block of West Main Street, the main street right through the town around 1:15 a.m.

Investigators were still on the scene Tuesday morning, interviewing apartment residents to determine whether any property was stolen during the home invasion.

Police said six people were in the apartment - five men, one woman - when the suspects entered the home.

Witnesses said three suspects entered the home wearing masks. Two of the men were armed with a semiautomatic handgun and a shot gun, respectively, according to Plainfield police.

They demanded money and drugs from the six people inside the apartment, assaulted the men when they did not get what they wanted, and fled the apartment. Police said the victim pursued the suspect, and a struggle ensued in the vestibule of the building.

That victim was shot once in the arm and taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries. The man who was beaten was treated and released.

The three males fled in a red SUV, Plainfield police said. The shooter is described as Hispanic, 18-25, 5-feet-8 and 170 pounds.

After implementing their canine unit to pick up and trail the suspects, police have determined the suspects have left the village of Plainfield in that vehicle.
