On 1/17/19 at approximately 4:25 AM, Officers responded to the 200 block of Mill Road to investigate a domestic disturbance.
Addison Police Officers arrived on scene minutes later. While entering the apartment, officers encountered a person armed with a knife. Officers gave commands to gain the person’s compliance in dropping the knife. This person advanced on officers while brandishing the knife. One officer fired their duty weapon and struck the person. Other officers and medical personnel responded to the residence and provided medical attention.
This was an isolated incident, which has ended, and there are no concerns for the on-going safety of the public.
The investigation into the incident will be conducted by the DuPage Major Crimes Task Force, which is standard practice for an officer-involved shooting.
The Addison Police Department recognizes, during officer-involved shooting incidents, the media and community have many questions. We will do our best to provide information as it is available to be released, and we appreciate the community’s patience while this investigation proceeds. All updates to this investigation will be shared via the Addison Police Department Facebook page.
