At approximately 5:00 AM on Tuesday, July 28, the Lombard Police Department responded to the 800 block of Foxworth Boulevard to check on the well-being of a 32 year old male subject.
Officers were sent to the residence in response to concerns about messages the subject had posted on social media about harming himself. As officers attempted to make contact with the subject, a gunshot was heard and a bullet struck the wall in the hallway where the officers were located. At that time the officers requested the activation of the FIAT SWAT Team and continued efforts were made to contact the subject. The SWAT Team secured the apartment and eventually gained entry. Upon gaining entry, a male subject was found deceased.
Lombard police detectives are conducting a death investigation in conjunction with the DuPage County Coroner’s Office. There were no additional injuries during the incident and the police are not seeking any suspects at this time. For more information please contact Police Chief Ray Byrne at (630)620-4476.
