Person with gunshot wound pulled from Fox River in South Elgin

A person with a gunshot wound, which police said might have been self-inflicted, was pulled from the Fox River on Thursday morning in northwest suburban South Elgin.

A few minutes after 11 a.m., crews responded to Spring and Water streets on the west side of the Fox River dam, according to a statement from South Elgin police.

The person, with a possibly self-inflicted gunshot wound, was pulled from the river and taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Elgin, police said. His condition was not immediately available.

“At no time was there any risk to the public,” police said.

South Elgin police are investigating.
