AURORA – Aurora Police’s Special Response Team has taken a man into custody after a standoff on Oct. 6 in the 500 block of South Lake Street.
The incident began just after 4:45 p.m., when Aurora police officers responded to 911 calls for a disturbance with shots fired in the 600 block of South Lake Street, according to a news release from the Aurora Police Department. When officers arrived, two men took off running, the release stated.
Officers quickly started searching the area, and one juvenile was taken into custody a short distance away from the incident, according to the release. An Aurora Police patrol supervisor spotted the other man and started chasing him.
The supervisor shouted commands at the suspect, but he didn’t stop and ran into a home in the 500 block of South Lake Street, the release stated. Officers attempted to make contact with the suspect, but he refused to come out.
Around 7 p.m., a Kane County search warrant was authorized for the home and Aurora Police’s Special Response Team and Drone Team was activated and responded to the scene, the release stated. Naperville’s Special Response Team also responded to the scene to assist.
Aurora’s Emergency Management Agency was also requested to the scene and assisted in shutting down roadways in the area. Officers used loudspeakers to make announcements for anyone inside the home to come out immediately.
A woman came out of the home, but officers believed the suspect and potentially others were still inside the home. Officers continued to make announcements and eventually made entry to the front of the home.
A short time later, a man and another woman came out of the home. The man was taken into custody and is currently being interviewed by detectives.
Evidence technicians from Aurora Police’s Evidence Unit responded to the scene to identify and collect forensic evidence from the incident. Detectives are still investigating the circumstances of the incident.
