Suspect Dead, Pana Cop Injured, After Tuesday Morning Shootout in Pana


An armed suspect is dead and a Pana Police officer is recovering from non-life threatening injuries after an early Tuesday morning shootout.

 

A report from the Illinois State Police says Christian County law enforcement responded to a “man with a gun” call. An unidentified Pana officer was shot after entering a home.

 

The armed suspect then fled to the residence’s roof, where after several hours he set a fire, shot at other police and then was fatally shot by law enforcement.

 

Three other individuals in the house were detained and questioned. Police haven’t disclosed any motive for the shooting incident.

 

The dead suspect has been identified as 25-year-old Josh Edwards of Pana.
