Authorities now say two suspects who were known to the victim came to his house in the 2500 block of Leach Drive Tuesday afternoon. Shortly after they arrived, there was a struggle, during which the 22-year-old man was shot in the leg, officials said.

The suspects then fled on foot.

Once police arrived, around 1:30 p.m., they found the injured victim, who was then transported to the hospital.

Officers searched the area “for several hours,” according to a news release from the Naperville Police Department, eventually locating and arresting a juvenile in connection with the incident. That juvenile was taken to the River Valley Juvenile Detention Center.

This morning, they appeared in court, charged with one count of aggravated robbery. Authorities say that person was remanded, set to next appear in court on May 1.

The second alleged offender is still at large. Officials say the search for that suspect is ongoing.
