North Riverside police say they have four people in custody following what appears to have been a home invasion in the 2200 block of Northgate Avenue at about 9 a.m. Friday.
Deputy Police Chief Deborah Garcia said North Riverside officers responded to the area after police received a report of either a burglary or home invasion in progress. At least one person was inside the house at the time of the incident and ran out of the home to call police, Garcia said.
When officers arrived they reported four people fleeing the scene. At least one of those people fired shots at police, who did not return fire, Garcia said. No one was wounded by the gun fire.
Several police agencies, including a Cook County Sheriff’s helicopter and Cook County K-9 unit assisted North Riverside police, who took four people into custody and recovered multiple weapons, Garcia said.
Garcia said police believe all of the suspects involved in the incident are in custody.
“The community is not at risk,” Garcia said.
As of noon, police were still on the scene and processing it for evidence. No details were available about those in custody.
