Tarry for the Nonce

One Day and Counting

Police in LaGrange said the suspect described as being in his late 20s, about 6 feet, 2 inches with an athletic build and dark hair, and wearing shorts and a T-shirt had held up at Harris Bank there at about 12:30 p.m. and then fled in a white, four-door Cadillac sedan.

Police trailed him from LaGrange where at one point he shot at two squad cars, striking them and slightly injuring an officer who was cut by a shattered windshield to the Villa Park area. He abandoned the car and ran into a wooded area before entering the home . . .

Police also closed off stretches of major thoroughfares, including Route 83 between North Avenue and St. Charles Road and North Avenue between Route 83 and Addison Road.

On- and off-ramps from I-290 to Route 83 were also shut down as authorities closed in on the area, state police confirmed, and Metra trains through the Villa Park area were also halted.

Yup, I got stuck in the Villa Park traffic last night. The standoff continues.

  1. Ah, so that’s what all the rumors were about. Good to know it wasn’t just so-called rubber-necking
