The identity of a man shot to death early Sunday at a party in Round Lake Park is expected to be released Tuesday.

Two other men shot when gunfire erupted at the party remained in critical condition Monday, police said, while a fourth gunshot victim was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

No one was in custody Monday in connection with the shooting, which occurred about 1:15 a.m. at a home on the 500 block of Fairlawn Avenue, police said.

Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper said he met Monday with relatives of the man who was killed and is giving them time to deal with what happened before his identify becomes public.

Police said the gunfire erupted after several people the hosts did not know were turned away from the family party. According to police, at least one man returned and began shooting outside from the driveway before entering the house and shooting the four men in the kitchen area.

Several leads were being pursued by the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force, but no description of whom they might be looking for was released.
