Police say a man shot and killed another man who entered his residence in Beach Park Thursday morning and pulled a knife when a fight ensued.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office and Beach Park Fire Department responded around 12:40 a.m. Thursday to the 38100 block of North Loyola Avenue in Beach Park for a report of a person shot.
Sheriff’s 911 Telecommunicators were told that the person who fired the gun, a 24-year-old man, was involved in an altercation with the man who had been shot.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said deputies arrived to find Tino Roane, 37, of Waukegan, deceased in the residence.
The person who shot Roane had been living at the residence and remained at the scene until deputies arrived.
A preliminary investigation shows Roane arrived at the residence of the 24-year-old man.
Roane knocked at the door and let himself inside because he was an acquaintance of the female homeowner, who was not home, Covelli said.
The 24-year-old man asked Roane to leave several times and then a physical altercation ensued between the two men.
During the altercation, Roane grabbed a knife from the kitchen, Covelli said.
The 24-year-old man shot and killed Roane.
The 24-year-old man is currently in custody as detectives continue their investigation. It is unknown if he will be charged.
There is no known risk to the community, Covelli said.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office said an autopsy showed Roane died from multiple gunshot wounds.
