A six hour standoff ended on Chicago South Side early Wednesday morning with one person in custody, a second person dead and a police captain recovering in the hospital.

The captain was shot during a gun battle Tuesday night in the Englewood community.

The shooting happened at an apartment building at 72nd and Lowe.

The officer was taken to the hospital. Officials confirm he is in serious, but stable condition.

The warrant was issued for the arrest of a suspect in a triple shooting in Indiana.

The 42-year-old suspect's name is Daniel Brown.

Sources tell FOX59 News that Brown had been tracked to his sister’s apartment in Englewood in a semi tractor-trailer he had stolen from a South Side Marion County truck yard Sunday - the day after he allegedly shot three people in Indianapolis.

Shortly after midnight Wednesday, Police Supt. Garry McCarthy announced that one man in custody another man was dead in the home. No guns were fired during SWAT entrance he said.

McCarthy isn't sure if the person in custody is Brown.  He also did not know if the death was caused by initial exchange hours ago or if it was self-inflicted.
