Man found dead after Little Village SWAT situation

SUN-TIMES MEDIA WIRE - A 68-year-old man was found dead after a Chicago Police SWAT team responded to a domestic disturbance Monday morning in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

Emergency crews were called about 7:45 a.m. to the disturbance involving the man and a 37-year-old man at a home in the 3400 block of West 23rd Street, police said. The situation was resolved at 12:24 p.m.

The older man was found dead inside the home with a gunshot wound to the head, authorities said. An autopsy Tuesday ruled his death a suicide.

The younger man was taken into custody and was still being questioned Tuesday afternoon, police said.

University Park Police Chief John Pate said in an email that despite reports, the suspect was never affiliated with the police department. He worked as security guard for AASI Security Services at a University Park apartment complex, but was fired two years ago and currently worked for another security company, Pate said.
