AVON, Ill. (AP) — Illinois State Police have identified a suspect being held in the fatal shooting of a sheriff’s deputy who was responding to a home in which a man was barricaded.
Nathan Woodring of Avon is suspected in the death of 39-year-old Fulton County Deputy Troy Chisum, who was responding to a battery and disturbance call Tuesday in the area of Avon, about 165 miles (266 kilometers) southwest of Chicago.
Authorities say multiple shots were fired during the incident which left Chisum, a 4½-year veteran of the department and a paramedic, dead. He was among four Fulton County deputies who responded to the scene. Additional details weren’t immediately released.
The standoff continued for hours until the 42-year-old Woodring was taken into custody Wednesday. He is being held in the McDonough County Jail in Macomb pending the filing of formal charges.
