Officers shot and killed a man early Thursday morning after the man began firing shots into the air from two guns in a Buffalo Grove parking lot, officials said.
The Buffalo Grove Police Department responded around 12:29 a.m. Thursday to a 911 call in the area of Radcliffe Road and Boxwood Lane in Buffalo Grove for a report of a man with a gun.
Buffalo Grove Deputy Chief Michael Szos said officers arrived and found an armed male white in his early 20s in a parking lot of a vacant building at 1250 Radcliffe Road.
The man was holding two handguns and began walking towards the officers. The man then started shooting both guns into the air.
Officers gave the suspect commands to stop but he refused and continued walking towards them while still armed with the guns, Szos said.
The officers then shot the man and began to perform CPR on him. Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene.
No one else was injured during the incident but two of the officers were transported to the hospital for observation.
The Lake County Major Crime Task Force is leading the investigation due to the officers being involved.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office is in the process of scheduling an autopsy.
