Palos Heights Police Still Hunting Suspects in Home Invasion

Police are hoping for additional details on two assailants who shot a man during a home invasion April 15.

Palos Heights police are still looking for two men who followed a local man home from a casino, then robbed him of his winnings and shot him.

Scott Farrow, 51, returned home April 15 from Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind. with about $10,000 in winnings—and the men struck him with a blunt object and demanded he hand it all over. When Farrow refused, they shot him in the abdomen and fled from his home in the 7900 block of West 131st Street.  

Farrow was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he underwent surgery and was listed in serious but stable condition. 

Security footage from the casino has helped police narrow possible suspects in the city's first shooting in 24 years, but they're hoping Farrow can provide additional insight, Deputy Police Chief Dave Delaney told the Chicago Tribune.
