Sheriff’s deputies responding to a call at a home in Port Barrington fatally shot a man after he opened fire and shot a woman early Tuesday morning.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said they received a call around 1:22 a.m. Tuesday in the 200 block of Manchester Lane in Port Barrington, which is on the border of Lake County and McHenry County.
Deputies responded to the call, which was for a report of domestic violence, and the suspect opened fire on them upon their arrival, the sheriff’s office said.
The suspect shot an adult female when he opened fire. The deputies returned fire, striking the suspect.
The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The female sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Paramedics transported the woman to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for treatment.
No sheriff’s deputies were injured during the incident.

The incident is being investigated by the McHenry County Major Investigation Assistance Team (MIAT).
Additional information is expected to be released at a later time, officials added.
