Standoff ends peacefully between Calumet City shooting suspect, police

A man suspected of shooting a 62-year-old in Calumet City surrendered to police Monday morning after over 14 hours of negotiations.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting about 1:45 p.m. in the 100 block of North State Street, according to Calumet City spokesman Sean Howard. They found the 62-year-old with multiple gunshot wounds, possibly sustained during a confrontation with another man, Howard said.

He was transported to an area trauma center where his condition remained unknown.


The suspected shooter, a 52-year-old man, fled the scene to his home in the 100 block of Maple Court, Howard said.

When officers attempted to make contact and approach the home several shots were fired at police, according to Howard.

Officers did not return fire and the South Suburban Emergency Response Team was called to the scene, Howard said.

The suspect is in custody as of 7:40 a.m. and charges are pending.
