SWAT Standoff Suspect Killed After Firing At Police, 3 Police Officers Struck by Gunfire (Non-life-threatening injuries) 325 Woodridge Cir. – Video by Dave Weaver

South Elgin police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 10:03 PM Tuesday July 3, 2018 to a report of “a shooting” at 325 Woodridge Circle South Elgin, Il. With police and firefighter/paramedics on scene, fire command activated a MABAS Division 2 Box Alarm on Box #2-205 at 11:51 p.m. for staging for shots fired and as a precaution for possible hostages.

UPDATE: About 2:30 a.m., after about four hours of negotiation, a male suspect, who had shot at police and threatened to kill police just after 10:00 p.m. Tuesday, came out of a condo building and began shooting again. Three police officers were injured, and a fourth officer returned fire, which killed the male suspect.

The suspect was described “down” by 2:40 a.m. The officers were described as “hit” but at about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday there was no confirmation whether the police officers were hit by shots or by shrapnel from the shots. Their injuries were described as non-life-threatening. Two police officers were transported to Presence St. Joseph Hospital, and two police officers were transported to Advocate Sherman Hospital. The fourth police officer that was transported to a hospital, was the officer that fired the shot that killed the suspect. The fourth officer was transported for a vital signs check and health check, which is normal procedure in an officer-involved shooting.

Incident Outline

Police responded to a “shots fired” call.

The offender shot 2 rounds from a condo balcony when police arrived about 10:00 p.m.

Police took cover and initially did not return fire.

Police observed the suspect had a scoped rifle.

Police activated a mutual aid police response for SWAT functions and perimeter control, which brought assistance from members of about 10 police agencies.

Residents near the scene were involved in an evacuation operation between 11:00 p.m. Tuesday and 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, and were allowed to return to their homes after the offender was killed.

The offender shot at police again at about 2:30 a.m.

Police returned fire, and the suspect was killed at about 2:30 a.m.

Three police officers were injured — injuries determined initially to be non-life-threatening. At least two of the police officers injured were from neighboring communities.

There were a large number of police agencies and police officers on the scene. There are no confirmed shooting victims, but a high number of ambulances near the scene may be positioned as a precaution for the number of hostages, or for any potential injuries that could occur at this dangerous standoff.

Early, unconfirmed report indicated the offender was armed with a rifle or shotgun. Shots may have been fired at police, and SWAT tactical personnel were dispatched to the scene.

Route 31 was closed in both directions between State Street and Hancock Avenue, according to WBBM Traffic/780.

The incident remained active at 2:00 a.m. with some residents in the area being safely evacuated by police tactical personnel.
