16-hour armed standoff in Morton Grove ends with man taken into custody


MORTON GROVE, Ill. — A man is in custody after being barricaded in his home during a 16-hour standoff with police in Morton Grove.

Authorities were called to a house Monday evening around 5 p.m. on the 8900 block of Oriole Avenue to take a 51-year-old man into custody for aggravated domestic battery and serve him with an order of protection. Police said the man took out a shotgun and officers took cover outside. 

A family member who was inside the home was able to leave unharmed. 

There was a heavy police presence in the area all night. Throughout the night a perimeter was maintained around the residence and negotiations were attempted by the Northern Illinois Police Alarm System Emergency Services Team. 

Around 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, the man was taken into custody by police — more than 16 hours after officers arrived at a home.

The man was identified as 51-year-old Kevin Maguire, according to police. Maguire has been charged with aggravated domestic battery, with other charges forthcoming, Morton Grove police said.
