A man who barricaded himself in his Northbrook home following a domestic incident was found dead Wednesday evening of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Northbrook Dep. Chief Louis Caruso said police forcibly entered the home on the 2400 block of Partridge Lane at about 7 p.m. and found a man inside, yet to be indentified, dead of a gunshot wound.

Caruso said the incident began at about 2:22 p.m. a woman contacted Northbrook police about trouble with her husband at the home.

"She thought as she exited that she heard a gunshot," Caruso said.

Police came to the house to find it barricaded. Because of the report of a gun firing, police evacuated homes on Partridge Lane surrounding the residence.

“We made numerous attempts to make contact with the individual in the home in a variety of ways,” Caruso said. “They were all unsuccessful.”

With the assistance of other neighboring police departments and a Northern Illinois Police Alarm System (NIPAS) team on the scene, the decision was made to enter the home.

Police said there were no children in the home during the incident.
