Sheriff’s officials say a resident was released from custody last month and no charges have been filed yet against him after he shot and killed an armed man who entered his home in Beach Park.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office and Beach Park Fire Department responded around 12:40 a.m. October 6 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 at the time that 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 Lake County Coroner’s Office said an autopsy showed Roane died from multiple gunshot wounds.
An obituary for Roane said he was a U.S. Army veteran and had two sons.
The 24-year-old man involved was taken into custody as detectives investigated the case. He was released from custody the following day.
Covelli told Lake and McHenry County Scanner on Thursday that no charges have been filed so far.
He said that the investigation is still active and ongoing.
