Streamwood police are investigating the shooting death of a man during a “traffic dispute” Sunday. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the homicide victim as 46-year-old Scott Mattison of Streamwood. He died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds, the office determined after an autopsy Monday. The time of death was listed just before 6:30 p.m. at Amita St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates.
According to law enforcement, at approximately 5:19 p.m., officers were called to the area of Bartlett and Oltendorf roads regarding a dispute that resulted in one individual sustaining gunshot injuries.
A preliminary investigation revealed the driver of a blue Ford truck and a white Ford sedan became involved in a dispute, and both vehicles stopped on Barlett Road near Oltendorf. The driver of the truck exited his vehicle, approached the car, and then, the driver of the truck was shot multiple times, Streamwood police said.
The victim, identified as Scott Mattison, 46, of Streamwood was transported to AMITA Health St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates where he was later pronounced dead.
The driver of the white Ford was taken into custody, but no charges had been announced as of Monday afternoon.
Local reports allege that the driver has a license for his weapon but the question remains if he can prove his claims that this was self-defense and that the victim tried to take his gun!
