GLENWOOD | Glenwood police are alerting residents that a .38-caliber handgun allegedly used in a shooting Monday may have been discarded from the suspects' fleeing vehicle, police said.

Police are asking anyone who may find the weapon not to touch it and to call 911 immediately.

Three people were left with gunshot wounds after a shooting in an apartment building in the 500 block of Carroll Parkway. Officers were called at 10:25 a.m. to the apartment and found one resident with gunshot wounds in the rear hallway.

Police said a gray minivan was seen fleeing the area south on Pleasant Drive to west on 187th Street and north on Halsted Street. Homewood police stopped a vehicle matching the description in the 17400 block of Halsted Street in the retail district there.

Police found four people inside, two of whom had gunshot wounds.

Glenwood police believe the handgun was thrown from the vehicle during the incident. None of the gunshot injuries were deemed life-threatening.
