According to Bolingbrook Police Chief Mike Rompa, on Sunday, March 5, at approximately 8:15 p.m., officers were called to Lee Lane for an alleged domestic home invasion and located two adults and two juveniles suffering from gunshot wounds. An adult male and two juvenile females were pronounced deceased, and a 34-year-old woman was transported to the hospital, where she is in stable condition.
