“It doesn’t sound right at all,” said his father, Gerald Anderson.

Christopher Anderson and his daughter were involved in a car accident on Sunday. They were taken to NorthShore Highland Park Hospital and treated for minor injuries. However, at 1:30 Monday morning, hospital staff reported to police that Anderson had become aggressive and hostile.

The incident is being investigated by the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force. Highland Park police Commander Tim Wilinski declined to answer any questions regarding the shooting.
