ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. — Three people were found dead Monday in a north suburban home, prompting a police pursuit later.
At around 1:40 p.m., Round Lake Beach police were contacted to perform a well-being check at a home in the 200 block of East Camden Lane. Upon arrival, police located three deceased individuals inside. A homicide investigation is underway, police said.
At some point, a police pursuit involving the alleged suspect took place.
The suspect crashed along I-80 at the Des Plaines River Bridge, near Duncan and Water Streets, a source told WGN News.
Round Lake Beach police told WGN News the suspect was taken into custody following the pursuit.
It was a startling scene for neighbors in the area.
“It’s a very peaceful, quiet neighborhood. It’s just very shocking to see something like this happen,” J.C. Serrano said. “I walk my dogs here every day in this neighborhood. I have seen a family that lives, I assume, in that house. Some children that I’ve seen there as well.”
No identification of the bodies has been made at this time.
