Police Investigate Call of Shots Fired, Find No Evidence

Several Kendall County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to a home in the 0-99 block of Saugatuck Road in Boulder Hill Monday morning regarding an earlier domestic dispute and shots fired call that occurred in Oswego.

Oswego Police say a report of a shooting Monday morning near Route 34 and Douglas Road can not be confirmed.

Police Chief Jeff Burgner said a 911 call came in at about 11 a.m. for shots fired near the intersection. Numerous police responded to the area, but found no evidence or witnesses to substantiate the claim, he said.

“Right now we just don’t believe that there were any shots fired in the area,” Burgner said. “At that time of day at that particular intersection there would tend to be many witnesses, but we haven’t found any.”

Police also canvassed the area for evidence of bullet holes or shell casings, but have found nothing. The man who called 911 also is not cooperating with police, Burgner said.

Burgner said the call is likely related to a 9:38 a.m. domestic battery incident that occurred in the 100 block of Grays Court. As a result of that call, Ellihue Pegues Jr. 37, of the 0-99 block of Saugatuck Road in Boulder Hill, was arrested for driving on a suspended license. 

Kendall County Sheriff’s deputies were later dispatched to Pegues’ Saugatuck Road home regarding the incident. However, whether he was involved in the shots fired call is not known, Burgner said.

Police continue to investigate the incident, and plan to review the 911 tapes for additional information, Burgner said.
