BOURBONNAIS — A resident of Emery Drive in Bourbonnais addressed village trustees about a shooting that occurred in the neighborhood Sunday.

Stephan Moulton made his concerns known during the public comments portion of Tuesday’s meeting.

“I can understand that a thorough investigation will happen,” Moulton said. “From beginning to end, we want that to happen. But the residents of Emery Drive needed to feel assured that everything possible had been done that night. So we felt that our kids could go back out to the front yard on the morning of July 4 and play in the front yard.
