3 Dead, 1 Wounded in St. Charles Shooting including Two Teen Girls

A Man and two teen girls were found shot to death in a St. Charles luxury condominium complex Friday evening, police said.

Police were called to the Milestone Row condominium complex in the 400 block of S. First Street at 5:12 p.m. after receiving a 911 call from someone inside the residence and reports of gunshots from neighbors, according to a St. Charles Police Department press release.

Deputy Police Chief David Kintz said four people were shot inside the condo. In addition to the adult male and two teenage girls, an adult female was transported by ambulance to Delnor-Community Hospital in Geneva. Her condition was unknown.

Kintz said investigators were working to get a search warrant so that evidence technicians could process the scene.

“This is a very difficult scene for the first responders to work with. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family members who are left to deal with this tragic situation,” the deputy police chief said. He said the St. Charles Police Department’s social workers were on the scene.

Kintz said police are early in their investigation. He said they have not as yet made any positive identification of the victims.

“We do not believe there is a threat to the public. We believe this was an isolated incident,” he said.

Several calls were made to 911 from people who heard the shots. However, an emergency call also was made from someone inside the condo as well. He said the four people who were injured were the only ones inside the condo during the shooting. He has not yet been able to determine if there were prior domestic incidents connected to the residence.

The 22-unit complex was not evacuated.

Kyle Guilford lives in the apartment complex across from the condominiums. “I came home to a lot of police squad cars. I have lived in St. Charles my whole life — it’s very uncharacteristic for St. Charles,” Guilford said.
