GARY | Orland Park police are searching for a Gary man who is the second suspect in a home invasion and shooting.
An arrest warrant was issued Monday for Warren L. Hunter, 31, by Bridgeview Circuit Court Associate Judge Carmen Aguilar. Police are also searching for two additional suspects who were not identified Monday evening.
The home invasion happened at about 2:50 a.m. Friday at a residence in the 10900 block of Antelope Lane, police said. At least two men entered the home and shot the 30-year-old homeowner.
They then left with stolen items from the house. Police recovered the vehicle thought to be used by the suspects in Gary.
Orland police said the homeowner was taken to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox and is expected to recover from his injuries.
Police said the unidentified homeowner moved from Portage to Orland Park with his fiance and two children less than a year ago.
On Friday night, police narrowed in on a suspect in the case, Anthony M. "A-Train" Espinoza, 27, of 10440 Nelson St., Winfield, who died from a gunshot wound to the head, the Lake County Sheriff's Department said.
The sheriff's department had surrounded Espinoza at a Marktown home when they heard a gunshot from inside the house, police said. Someone from inside the house shouted for someone to call an ambulance because a man had just shot himself.
Orland Park police said Espinoza knew the homeowner.
Hunter is described as 5 feet and 3 inches, weighs 124 pounds and has black hair, police said.
Anyone with information about Hunter's whereabouts or the case is asked to call police at (708) 349-4111.
