Death Investigation- South Beloit

SOUTH BELOIT, IL – On June 10, 2018 at 12:13 am South Beloit Police Officers were sent to a residence in the 2200 block of Blackhawk Blvd. regarding a man with a gun. The female caller stated her husband had a gun, fired a shot and was threatening. The woman also advised that her father-in-law and her small children were in a tent in the back yard.

The officers retreated to cover and called for assistance from the Rockton and Roscoe Police Department and the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office. Officers began a dialogue with the male but he retreated into the residence. A short time later the male exited the rear of the home and walked to the side yard with the gun pointed to his head. He walked to a wooded area and discharged two shots, came back out into the open and fired one round into his head. South Beloit Fire Department personnel were on scene and immediately began attending to the male. He was later transported to a local hospital but died from his injury.
