Algonquin Sunday Barricade Ends In Apparent Suicide
The McHenry County Sheriff's Office SWAT team, complete with MARV vehicle, was called in after Algonquin Police responded to a 911 call about an armed suicidal man barricaded in a home in the 900 block of Glacier Parkway. The area was cordoned off and eventually police said they heard three shots from the home.
Deputies sent in a camera-equipped robot before SWAT members entered the home at about 2 pm. "We had to find out what transpired after the shots went off," said Deputy Chief Steve Kuzynowksi. Police said they found the man dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot. No one else was reported to have been in the home.
Algonquin PD, and the McHenry County Coroner are still investigating what happened.
