Holevis says a male adult pulled a handgun and fired several shots, hitting 16-year-old Nathaniel Burns Jr. of Sauk Village and three others. The Lake County coroner's office said Burns was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Authorities say two of the victims were treated for graze wounds and released from the hospital. A third victim was admitted to the hospital in good condition.

The shooting occurred in a strip mall, and Holevis says investigators are reviewing surveillance video from businesses near scene.
