Police authorities in Fox Lake, Illinois are currently on the lookout for three suspects in the fatal shooting of 30-year-old Police Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, announcing last Wednesday, September 2 that they are brushing through social media tips to look for the men suspected to be involved in the killing. Police are unsure if the suspects are still within the vicinity of the crime scene or if they have fled.

Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Commander George Filenko said that around 100 investigators have been scouring the 2-square-mile perimeter of homes, marshland, and railroad tracks in the village of Fox Lake, to catch Gliniewicz’s killers. Gliniewicz was shot last Tuesday, September 1.

Filenko noted that the suspects – who Gliniewicz had been pursuing before he was shot – were noted as two white men and one black man.
