A street sign of Arbor Lane in Crest Hill. Allen J. Edison, 30, of Crest Hill, was shot and killed on the street Monday, according to police and the coroner's office.

A 30-year-old man died from multiple gunshot wounds in the 1700 block of Arbor Lane in Crest Hill, according to the Will County Coroner's Office.

Alan J. Edison was pronounced deceased at 10:05 a.m. on Monday, the coroner's office said. About 6 a.m. Monday, officers found Edison inside of a bullet-riddled vehicle that was parked in the the Woodlands apartment complex, according to the Crest Hill police.

A preliminary autopsy performed Monday revealed Edison suffered multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner's office said.

The coroner's office said the Will-Grundy Major Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident. Dan Troike, a lieutenant with the Will County Sheriff's office and a task force commander, referred to questions to Crest Hill Police Chief Ed Clark.

Clark said Edison's death remains under investigation. He said Edison lives in the apartments and was the target of the attack.

"There's no indication that this was some random killing," Clark said.

He said police are exploring potential ties to other shootings.

Clark said based on the investigation thus far, a handgun was used in the shooting.

He declined to specify if one suspect or several shot at Edison.

Officers canvassed the apartment complex, Clark said, and the Will-Grundy County Major Crimes Task Force assisted the Crest Hill police.

Police set up a command post inside a Will County Emergency Management Agency vehicle during the search for leads.

Investigators also sought any surveillance video residents might have that could shed light on the killing.
