I recently learned that two people were attacked in River Grove; one of the two was shot. This shooting apparently happened somewhere near River Grove School. The River Grove Police Dept. appears to be keeping this information from the public. During yesterday's Oktober Fest, I asked a police officer who was crossing pedestrians about the incident. He stated that the "Incident is under investigation" and "That's all he can say."

There wasn't even a report about this shooting in the Elm Leaves.

The public has a right to know if shootings are happening in River Grove!!

You could probably contact the newspaper. Chicago Tribune or the Suntimes.

New report is saying that the husband shot his wife in the face on Budd St, and then made up the story about the robbery. Still, they didn't notify ANYONE on the block that an incident had occurred. Two thumbs down for the Barney Fife's who aren't considering that there are KIDS all over that block.
There was also a home invasion on Davisson, but they are not releasing any information about it.

that just irritates the heck out of me. Making up some bullshit story about some black kids breaking in....having the police go on some wild goosechase.

They should throw the old goat in jail and charge him.

Yes I recently moved to RG and I hsce already heard of 3 houses that have been broken into. Guess its only a matter of time before the punks break in the wrong house and we residents have to take care of them in self defense. These incidents need to be made very public, we need to communicate with each other and not let these idiots destroy a good town.

The husband shot the wife in the face. He made up a story about two black men with masks.Thd husband is not even,in custody. And did the community ever think that he could still be a danger to himself or others. Not to mention the fact they they make falsley accuse two innocent men. The wife knows someone at the courts. Now had this been anybody else, hummmmmm.

ok...if they are in their 80s...did anyone think the shooter had dementia and shot the wife...if so...then he is a threat to society.

I can not believe the guys is not in custody. He should be evaluated for mental health.....

this is what i mean about RG...they dont have any sense about these sorts of things.

I thought it was a crime to file a false police report. If it was anywhere else the guy would be in jail. What happened to this guy for lying to the police?

The wife is Loretta from the Historical Society. The cook county state's attorney's office would be the office to prosecute. Supposedly, from other blogs the gun is missing hmmmm.

You are right !! But we live in Mayberry. The village attorney - Bart Smith - should be reported to the Bar Association for covering this up.
