Around 10:40 p.m., Antioch officers were alerted to a police chase that started in Waukegan and was heading toward their village. The driver, who was later identified as a 25-year-old Antioch resident, led police to Antioch Manor apartments in the 400 block of Donin Drive.
The suspect got out of his vehicle at the apartment complex wielding a high-powered crossbow, police said.
While Waukegan and Antioch officers tried to de-escalate the situation, the suspect pointed the crossbow several times at the police. He then ran into a nearby apartment building. Officers followed him into the building where the suspect again pointed his weapon at them.
At that time, a Waukegan police officer fired a single shot at the suspect but did not strike anyone.
The suspect surrendered to police and was taken into custody. He was then transported to a nearby hospital.
