- A Wauconda shooting and alleged home invasion over the weekend appears to be the result of a mistaken address, police said Monday.
Two Wauconda residents, a 15-year-old boy and a 49-year-old man, were shot by the owner of a house on the 300 block of Indian Ridge Trail in the far north suburb just before 6 p.m., police said, after the two refused to leave the residence.
Wauconda police Cmdr. John Thibault said the two thought they were picking up a family member. When told by the residents that their family member was not present, the visitors did not believe them, he said.
The two forced their way in and allegedly assaulted the two people inside, causing minor injuries, according to police.
They had the wrong house and got shot for their trouble. What's not to love about this story?
