LDN -- Top Stories


There is a serious law enforcement action ongoing on Interstate 55 at the 133 mile post. State police, along with county and other agencies are working to apprehend a fugitive who is alleged to have injured or killed a police officer in some other part of the state.

I55 is being shut down as the fugitive has apparently crashed. Lincoln Parkway on the north end of the city is also being shut down.

Please avoid these areas.

Update:  The suspect is in his car in a field near the 133 mile post.  State Police are currently negotiating for a peaceful end to the scenario.

Update at 5 p.m.:  As evening approaches, it appears the stand off continues.  It is confirmed that the U.S. Marshal shot this morning has died in Rockford.

Update at 5:06 p.m.:  It is reported the shooter is in custody.  There were injuries reported and the shooter is being transported to a hospital.

Here is a video of the post arrest interview with the Illinois State Police:



Long standoff on Interstate 55 comes to an end Thursday evening

Logan County Paramedics transported suspect Floyd Brown to ALMH for
non-life threatening treatment shortly after the standoff ended by the use
of flash bangs.

The crashed truck could not be seen from any direction as it was in a
remote deep ditch off of Interstate 55 near Legends Subdivision on the north
side of Lincoln. Law enforcement officials and investigators remained on
scene for some time after the standoff ended.

Dusk was closing in as media waited for near Kruger Elevator just south
of the 133 exit to Interstate 55 interchange. Numerous northern Illinois
television stations swarmed the area to get first hand reports related to
the incident that began with an officer being shot around Rockford.
Approximately 3:30 p.m. it was reported that the McHenry County Sheriff's
Deputy Jacob Keltner had passed away from his injuries.

This artist rendering of plans for a new business venture in Atlanta shows multiple views of a new truck stop, convenience store, and Dairy Queen Grill and Chill fast food restaurant all in one building.

The business along with a car wash will be built in 2019 with hopes of opening late in the year or early in 2020. The new complex will offer a number of revenue opportunities for the city of Atlanta through motor fuel tax, sales tax, gaming tax, as well as the capture of property tax for future developments through the city's Tax Increment Financing program. In addition, when up and running, the businesses could provide more than 50 full time and part time jobs for local residents.
