Tinley Park Home Invasion Leaves 2 Injured, Search 4 Suspects
A Home Invasion in Tinley Park on Wednesday April 14: 2 Suspects in Custody, Police Search for 4 More
In the early hours of the morning on April 14, two people in Tinley Park were the victims of a home invasion. They were injured in the invasion, but are expected to make a full recovery. A massive manhunt is underway for four more suspects in the home invasion after two have already been taken in to custody.
According to Chicago Breaking News, all four suspects are described as African-American males. Two are 5-foot-7 with short dark hair and a medium build, wearing long black t-shirts and black pants with black vests. One was wearing a Yankee baseball hat and that same man was carrying a gun.
One suspect was caught as police entered the home and he did not make it to his vehicle in time. Another was caught at about 6:15am after a resident at 183rd street and Lenore Lane saw a man in a neighbor's driveway 'acting suspiciously'.
Tinley Park Home Invasion
The home invasion happened at about 4am when four people were asleep inside the home. A young male inside the home called the police and said that someone was in the house with a gun. That caller hid in the living room. It is not known why the home invasion occurred or what the suspects were after.
The manhunt is underway however, and police have warned schools and businesses in the area and they have set up a perimeter in the area.
Tinley Park Commander Rick Bruno said:
"This doesn't happen often at all," Bruno said of the manhunt. "It's very rare."
All schools in the area are on soft lockdown, which means pupils will be able to go outside at the end of the day only, and only when someone is there to pick them up.
