Recordings have been released from last month’s Board of Trustee’s meeting (12.17.2020), and the Village Attorney’s report contained the following update:

“Just really quickly, the Drury litigation versus the Village discovery is now closed. It’s moving in to motion practice, so we’ll hopefully get some kind of ruling in February, March-ish.”

Illinois State Police are investigating a shooting early Friday that resulted in the death of a 54-year old Sleepy Hollow woman in a vehicle in Barrington Hills.

Local police and rescue personnel, responding to a report of shots fired shortly after 1 a.m. Friday, found the woman, identified by state police as Christina Czuj, in a vehicle on Palatine Road just east of Barrington Road. The area is on the border of Barrington Hills and Inverness.

District 15 troopers, who patrol tollways in Northern Illinois, responded and assumed control of the investigation, according to state police Sgt. Christopher “Joey” Watson.

The report location was listed as being on the ramp from I-90 westbound to Barrington Road, but Watson did not elaborate.

According to Barrington Hills police, the case originated in the tollway’s jurisdiction and was immediately turned over to state police.

Two people were injured, one critically, in a crash between two pickup trucks early Saturday morning in Barrington Hills.

The crash happened shortly before 7 a.m. at Dundee and Bateman roads. Barrington Hills police said their preliminary investigation indicates that a truck driven south on Bateman by an 87-year-old man collided with a truck heading east on Dundee, driven by a 43-year-old man.

The 87-year-old man was ejected from his vehicle and taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates in critical condition.

The 43-year-old man was also taken to St. Alexius, but with injuries that were not life-threatening.

“I’m not sure what the address is … ,” one person said. “I’m scared. … Can you see my location? Please come. Please, please, please.”

A review of 911 calls made on the night of a fatal Barrington Hills rental home shooting in early March offers a glimpse into the chaos of the night as party-goers called for help as they reported hiding in closets, bathrooms and other areas in and outside the sprawling house.

The 20 minutes of audio, which Pioneer Press received through a Freedom of Information Act request from Barrington Hills police, features 911 dispatchers fielding about two dozen calls. They were mostly from panicked party-goers, following early-morning gunfire March 7 in the 300 block of Old Sutton Road.

The emergency calls began with dispatchers asking for the address of the incident. Most who had dialed 911 didn’t immediately know where they were and said they had to check. A number of callers were hoping dispatchers could get the location using information from the callers’ cell phone.

Recordings from the remotely orchestrated Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday night have been posted and can be accessed for your listening pleasure by clicking here.

At the beginning of Trustee Brian Cecola’s Public Safety report, he read a letter he entered in to the record that we felt we should post now in light of the events on Old Sutton Road three weeks ago today.

His letter reads as follows:

“I want take this opportunity as public safety chair to personally thank our officers for the fine work they did with this recent incident. I also want to thank our surrounding communities police tasks force without their assistance and support it would be impossible tb investigate and handle situations like this.

As the public may or may not be aware when we have incidents, we rely upon intergovernmental agreements with surrounding communities to support each other in investigations.

In a recent meeting with the village president and administrator and in conjunction with the treasurer and the Police Chief I am advocating to move forward with presenting the· costs associated with this investigation for immediate reimbursement from the property owner the rental company agencies and the responsible party who rented this property.

As you may all be aware this village board tasked our Village attorney with notifying the owner of their non-compliance which they did promptly days prior to this incident.

It appears the property owner and rental agencies ignored our Instructions even after they agreed days prior that they were in violation.

They did so at their peril and if we do not recover our taxpayer’s costs then I suggest we take immediate legal action to do so.”

Hopefully Police Chief Joseph Colditz will have much more to report on this incident very soon.

When Litita Herrod’s daughter woke her up in the early morning hours of March 7, she said she just knew something bad had happened.

But soon she learned her worst fear had come true. Her son, Sean Patton Jr., 28, had been shot and killed hours earlier at what authorities called a “large party” held at a big, ranch-style rental home in Barrington Hills.

According to the Cook County medical examiner’s office, Patton’s death was determined to be a homicide due to multiple gunshot wounds.

Barrington Hills Police Department spokesman William Walsh said Wednesday no arrests have been made. He said investigators are following leads but have not publicly identified any suspects.

Walsh also said that multiple people were shot during the incident. He said authorities are working to identify the others who were shot.

The man who died following a weekend shooting at a Barrington Hills house rented out on Airbnb has been identified as a 28-year-old man from Chicago.

In a news release Monday, the Barrington Hills Police Department identified the man as Sean Patton Jr.

“The preliminary investigation indicates there was a large party being held at the home by individuals from outside of Barrington Hills who had rented the property on a short-term basis,” police said in the release.

Village attorney Mary Dickson told the Barrington Courier-Review that short-term rentals are prohibited by village code.

Airbnb issued a statement Sunday saying the company has been in touch with investigators, that it is outraged by the “criminal violence,” and that house parties with open invitations are banned — a decision made by the company in December 2019.

A 28-year-old Chicago man has been identified as the victim of a fatal shooting that occurred during a party at this Barrington Hills home over the weekend.

Barrington Hills police have identified 28-year-old Sean B. Patton of Chicago as the victim of the fatal shooting during a house party early Saturday morning.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office previously ruled Patton’s death a homicide, saying he died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

As police and the Cook County Major Case Assistance Team continued their investigation of the slaying, a possible violation of local law through the apparent short-term rental of the house via Airbnb also is under scrutiny by law enforcement.

Barrington Hills has long emphasized its ban on commercial use of residential properties, Mayor Martin McLaughlin said.

“During my time in office, we have had very limited need to address anything even close to this,” he added.
