The following is an update of the Aurora Police Investigation of the workplace shooting event which took place on the City’s Near West Side earlier today.

At 1:24 pm, 2/15/19, Aurora Police Department received multiple calls of an active shooter at the Henry Pratt Manufacturing and Warehouse building, located at 641 Archer Ave.

Approximately four minutes later, the first officers arrived on scene and were immediately confronted by Gary Martin, a 45-year-old Aurora man armed with a handgun. The male fired upon the officers as they arrived, striking two of the four first responders.

Additional Aurora police officers responded to assist in an attempt to rescue the wounded officers and render aid. As additional law enforcement arrived at the scene, they continued to report gunfire heard within the building.

A regional law enforcement response was coordinated, and several teams of officers went inside the 29,000 square foot facility in an attempt to locate and stop the shooter. Aurora officers, along with officers from the Naperville Police Department ultimately confronted the offender inside the building at which time he fired at them. The officers returned fire, killing the offender.

In total, five Aurora police officers were shot by the gunman before this incident ended. All of the officers have been transported to area hospitals for treatment for apparent non-life-threatening injuries.

No injuries to first responders from other agencies have been reported.

Thus far in the investigation, we have confirmed five employees were located deceased inside the building. We have also confirmed that one employee is being treated at an area hospital for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

We are in the process of making notification to the victims’ families, and are unable to release any names or identifying information at this time.

The investigation into the officer-involved portion of this shooting incident is being conducted by the Kane County Officer-Involved Shooting Task Force. Investigators from the Aurora Police Department, with the assistance of the ATF, FBI, and Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office are conducting the investigation into the workplace shooting incident which precipitated the Aurora Police Response. Investigators have also obtained a search warrant for the offender’s residence in an attempt to locate any evidence which might further the investigation.

The investigation also includes a search for and collection of evidence at a very large crime scene at the Henry Pratt building.

At the time of this press release, the Victim Notification Center provided by Aurora University is no longer active.

The FBI has provided resources to victims associated with this event:

All official updates regarding this incident will be disseminated via the Aurora Police Department’s social media platforms. (Twitter and Facebook)

South Beloit PD:

On June 20, 2018 we made a Facebook post asking for assistance with two commercial burglaries. One of the burglaries occurred on June 10th at approximately 4am at Bubbles and Bows, 834 Gardner Street. Evidence recovered from the scene led investigators to identify Nicholas Munoz as the suspect. Upon review by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office an arrest warrant for burglary was authorized.

On February 14, 2019 South Beloit and Beloit Police located Munoz at a residence in the 1100 block of Harrison Avenue in Beloit where he was taken into custody. Munoz is lodged in the Rock County Jail awaiting extradition to Winnebago County.

Arrested: Nicholas Munoz, H/M, 28 years of age, Beloit resident.
Charge: Burglary – Bond $200,000.00

The South Beloit Police Department would like to thank the Illinois State Police Crime Scene Unit and Crime Lab for assisting on this investigation.

The charges against Munoz are accusations and he is considered innocent until proven guilty.
