IL sheriff’s deputy killed in shooting; suspect in custody

IL sheriff’s deputy killed in shooting; suspect in custody”

Brown's vehicle was spotted headed south on Interstate 55 and police were chasing him toward Lincoln, WLS-TV reported.

Brown allegedly fired shots both inside and outside of the hotel room and the officer was shot outside. Law enforcement agencies secured the perimeter and we quickly learned that there was a female acquaintance of the suspect still inside the hotel room.

Brown was taken into custody by IL police, officials said.

He said one of the members of the task force was hit.

Prosecutors in Winnebago County had issued an arrest warrant for Brown on an attempted murder charge with a bond of $5 million.

Pozzi said Brown is wanted on arrest warrants in Sangamon, Champaign, and McLean counties; as well as a parole violation warrant from the Illinois Department of Corrections. When the vehicle came to rest in a ditch, Brown briefly got out before barricading himself inside for about 6 hours.

Police say Brown remains at large and is to be considered armed and risky.

A U.S. Marshal who served a search warrant at an IL hotel on Thursday died from his injuries.

Police said Brown was wanted on warrants from multiple IL counties when the task force went to an Extended Stay America hotel in Rockford, a city about 80 miles (129 kilometers) northwest of Chicago. He had refused to leave the auto, and reports from troopers at the scene said he pointed a rifle out of the vehicle.

"He's fighting for his life", McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks told The Herald News of Joliet.

After shooting Keltner, Brown left the third-floor hotel room via the window and drove away in a Mercury Grand Marquis, Rockford police said.

Northbound and southbound lanes on I-55 temporarily were closed.

"We just want to end this situation peacefully with his surrender", he said.

The Rockford Police Department, Winnebago County Sheriff's Office and multiple other agencies are investigating.

Floyd Brown is pictured in this undated photo released by Bloomington IL Police Department. In one of the cases, he fled police investigating a burglary and crashed his vehicle, injuring at least two people.

Brown was sentenced to 13 years in prison and, with credit for good behavior, was released in January 2018.

Keltner was pronounced dead at a hospital several hours after he was shot, spokesman David Dezane said.
