Barricaded Subject/Death Investigation December 12, 2017




Date: December 12, 2017

Time:  9:47 A.M.

Location:  2423 S. Calhoun Street


On Tuesday, December 12, 2017, Officers responded to 2423 S. Calhoun Street on a reported suspicious person. The property owner requested the police after he heard noise coming from the upstairs of a vacant property where he had gone to work.

After officers arrived they heard what they believed to be a single gunshot from inside the building. Due to the circumstances EST and CRT units were activated and responded to the scene. Calhoun Street was closed off to traffic between Pontiac and Creighton for a short while when police secured the area.

Attempts to contact the subject inside the building were unsuccessful. A robot was introduced into the building and a male subject was found unresponsive inside. As the EST team cleared the building a second deceased male body was found.

Identities and cause of death are being withheld pending notification from the Allen County Coroner’s Office.
