Man dead, brother wounded after dispute during third brother’s funeral weekend
One man was killed and his brother critically injured during a domestic dispute in Huntley Monday while the family was gathering for the funeral of a third brother.
47-year-old Bob Grundei, in town from Florida, died after being shot in the chest. 50-year-old Mark Grundei, who lived with his mother in Huntely, was shot in the head, most likely self-inflicted.
The family had gathered in Huntley this weekend for the funeral of 45-year-old Brian Grundei who drowned May 16 in a retention pond in Deerfield.
Their mother, 81-year-old Alyce Grunde called 911 to say her sons were fighting and that shots were fired. She tried to stop the argument.
“She met the officers at the front door. She had a swollen discolored eye and a gunshot wound along side of her head,” said Huntley Police Chief John Perkins.
Police recovered a handgun but they don’t know who it belongs to.
Chief Perkins falls short of saying Mark Grundei killed his brother and tried to kill himself. They need to talk to their mother further for more information.
