Negotiators were continuing conversations with a shooting suspect early Monday, more than 12 hours after the man barricaded himself inside his residence at a Calumet City mobile home park, authorities said.
At approximately 1:45 p.m., police officers were called to the 100 block of State Street for a reported gunshot victim, village officials said. A 62-year-old man sustained multiple gunshot wounds during a confrontation with another man, police said.
The suspect fled to his home in the 100 block of Maple Court where officers attempted to make contact. As police approached his residence, shots were fired at the officers, officials said.
The officers didn't return fire and "took positions of cover" as a result, the Calumet City police chief said. Police and village officials said there was no threat to residents in the area.
The multi-jurisdictional South Suburban Emergency Response Team was called to assist Calumet City police.
Illinois State Police shut down multiple entrance and exit ramps to the nearby Interstate 94 shortly after the situation began. The Bishop Ford Expressway was reopened at 3:30 a.m., a Calumet City spokesman said early Monday.
Police haven't said if anyone beside the suspect was inside the residence.
