CHICAGO — A man was found dead after a more than 19-hour standoff with police on the city’s West Side.
The incident started at a home on the 5400 block of West Walton Street in the city’s Austin neighborhood around 7 a.m. Wednesday.
A law enforcement source said members of the violent crimes task force served a warrant at a tri-level apartment building in connection with an armed robbery investigation.
When officers made contact with the suspect, a shot was fired in their direction. No one was hurt and no one returned fire.
The man then barricaded himself inside an apartment for hours.
Around 2 a.m. Thursday, police entered the apartment and found the man dead.
No other injuries were reported.
