According to the interactive map located HERE, during 2015, 4 people were shot within a 5-mile radius of my domicile during the past year, 2 fatal and 2 non-fatal. The closest shooting was 3.22 miles away.
This 400-pound dude was allegedly one of the offenders. He allegedly murdered his estranged wife and had the Lake County Major Crimes Task Farce (not a typo) chasing ghosts all over northern Illinois. Many hours after the task farce members went home, King Kong turned himself in at the police station a mile down the street from where I live, at the time when my wife and I drove by the station on the way home from dinner.
