Crystal Lake police and McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies responded about 8:08 PM Monday August 27, 2018 to a report of a man with a gun at a house in the block of 400 Charlotte Avenue Crystal Lake, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a woman’s husband had a gun during a domestic disturbance. Information in this incident is not confirmed, and does not include any official information from police.
UPDATE: A 25 year-old man was in custody — possibly just before 9:39 p.m. Police say there are no charges connected to the incident, and the man was transported to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
