Memorial Day begins with La Salle Police dealing with alleged armed and suicidal man

Posted by wlpo on May 26, 2014

If you wondered what all the commotion was on the east side of La Salle just after midnight Memorial Day, it was for a suicidal man with a gun.

La Salle Police were joined by members of the State Police, Oglesby PD and La Salle County Sheriff’s Office in dealing with a 49-year old man threatening suicide with a shotgun. The man was eventually talked into being taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru without incident.

He faces possible weapons charges. The man’s name wasn’t released.
