A police standoff that began in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago with the attempted arrest of a shooting spree suspect ended six hours later with one man dead, the suspect in custody, and a high-ranking officer recovering from a head wound, officials said.
Capt. Edward Kulbida, 58, and with the department for nearly 30 years, was in serious condition after being shot in the shoulder and grazed in the head. He was expected to survive, according to hospital and police officials, reported the Chicago Tribune.
He was hit as Chicago police and federal agents attempted to arrest a suspect in a shooting and carjacking over the weekend in Indianapolis that left three people injured. Gunfire was exchanged and police finally stormed the apartment in the 7200 block of South Lowe Avenue around 11:30 p.m., finding one man dead from an apparent gunshot and taking another man into custody.
The identity of the 42-year-old dead man was not released, but the other man was identified as the suspect from Indiana, Daniel P. Brown. At least one gun was recovered, police said.
