Lombard suspect in custody after police-involved shooting

By Josh Stockinger

A Lombard police officer opened fire early Friday after being confronted by a man brandishing a handgun, officials said.

No one was injured in the shooting at a home on the 400 block of West Harrison Road. Police encountered the suspect while responding at 3:45 a.m. to a harassment complaint.

Authorities said the suspect confronted officers when they arrived at the home. One officer drew his service weapon and fired, at which point the suspect dropped his gun and was taken into custody, according to a news release.

Officials said the DuPage County Major Crimes Task Force and the state's attorney's office are investigating.
