GENEVA, Ill. — A man and a woman are dead after suffering gunshot wounds inside a Geneva residence early Wednesday evening, according to Geneva Police Chief Eric Passarelli.
Police said officers responded to a report of a gunshot at a home on Pebble Beach Court around 5:22 p.m. in Geneva. When police arrived, officers found two victims — a man and a woman — suffering from gunshot wounds.
The fire department responded to the scene, according to police, and transported the man and the woman to an area hospital, where they later died from their injuries.
Police have not said who is responsible for the shooting, only that it appears everyone involved was at the home when authorities arrived.
Michael Sloan, who’s lived in the neighborhood for nearly two decades, just returned from Boston after undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment. He said he recently talked to the woman killed, who showed concern for his ongoing medical battle.
“She said, I’ll be back in a while if you want to sit down and chat as to what was going on with my situation,” Sloan said. “She’s a great mom, a great neighbor. It’s a sad day.”
Police said they are investigating the incident as isolated and something domestic in nature, but they are also still very early in the investigative process.
“It’s too early to tell,” Passarelli said. “It does not appear to be accidental at this time, but again, we’re very early in trying to gather the information and facts as to what may have occurred.”
Police said the scene is secure and there is no immediate risk to the public.
Kane County Major Crimes Task Force is assisting the Geneva Police Department as the investigation continues.
