Police: Man Suspected of Killing 2 People Kills Himself

Police say a man suspected of killing two people in LaSalle County killed himself after officers found him at a house in Kendall County.

The News-Tribune says the investigation began Friday night in Ottawa where police discovered that two people had been fatally shot. The suspect, 48-year-old Chris Stankovich, died Saturday in Plano with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The victims were identified as 49-year-old Nicol Scolaro and 52-year-old Paul Ladue. Police say there's no threat to the general public. The shootings are under investigation.

The Northwest Herald , citing court records, says Scolaro had filed for protection orders against Stankovich in 2015 and in 2019.
