Timeline: More than 400 officers involved in Fox Lake manhunt

Seventeen minutes elapsed between the time Fox Lake police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz radioed about three suspicious people on foot and the first reports that the 30-year veteran had been shot. Here's how it unfolded:

7:52 a.m.: Gliniewicz radios to dispatchers that he notices three suspicious people walking on Honing Road.

7:55 a.m.: Gliniewicz calls for backup and says he is in a foot chase on Honing Road.

8:01 a.m.: Two officers arrive at Gliniewicz's location on Honing Road.

8:09 a.m.: Backup officers radio to dispatch that an officer is down.

8:25 a.m.: Gliniewicz is pronounced dead.

Authorities swarmed the town area looking for the three suspects, who have not been found. Among those joining the manhunt are:

• More than 400 officers from scores of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

• Eight "special response" teams from the Lake County sheriff's office; McHenry County sheriff's office; Northern Illinois Police Alarm System (NIPAS); Illinois State Police; FBI; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Marshal Service.

• Six aircraft from the AIR-ONE Emergency Response Coalition, state police, U.S. Coast Guard and FBI.

• Forty-eight K-9 officers and their dogs.
