Has anyone heard that there is a hostage situation in Lakeview on Grove Road? Is this just a rumor?

Drove by a couple hrs ago. Saw a bunch of cop cars, police dog and a cop carrying a shield (with the little window like you see on cop shows). Road was blocked off. Not sure what was going on.

I heard that it was someone who was threatening suicide & had a gun with him. He was alone and was taken to the hospital for evaluation. Nobody else was with him.

A man in the 400 block of Lakeview Court kept Oswego Police at bay for at least two hours Friday, threatening to kill himself with a gun, according to an Oswego Police news release.

Police evacuated the home and closed off nearby streets at about 4 p.m. to ensure the safety of the neighborhood. An Oswego Police negotiator made contact with the man after hours of attempts and he surrendered to police shortly after, the release said. A gun was found at the scene.

The man was taken to Rush-Copley Medical Center by an Oswego Fire Protection District ambulance. Police were also assisted by the Kendall County Sheriff's Department and the police's Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, the release said.(from Oswego Patch)
Thank God nobody was injured!

Too bad the cops didn't put this guy out of his misery. Days, weeks, months from now, we'll hear that he killed his wife and/or kids...because the nut balls around here never take themselves out; they take out their families.

You think so huh? Wait and see...this will be another case of a guy with financial difficulties on the verge of snapping. A couple days in the psych ward are NOT going to solve the problems that drove him to pick up a gun in his family home tonight. And, I did hear that his wife and kids were there and the police had to negotiate to get them out. You think they won't be targets in the future?

Darkdove I hope you're wrong but I definitely agree that scenario is becoming commonplace in our society. My son is a classmate to one of his children and that is pretty scary!! It makes one wonder if it is safe to send your kids to their friends house to hang out. I wholeheartedly support a citizen's right to bear arms, but guns are frequently used for domestic violence not protection!

I hope his license to own a gun is revoked.

Really? You think this is appropriate? You should be ashamed.

Where it shows a person posts from isn't always accurate....and does it really matter where a person is from when giving their opinion??

Hey darkdove, do you even know the person you are talking about? I would expect not! It's better to show some grace than to be judgemental....or should I say that you are metal! And if you do actually know the person they are talking about, why not help him out. Because if you knew the situtation, you would not have said the things you wrote. Keep your ugly comments to yourself.
