North Bell School Road) for a call to assist U.S. Marshals in reference to a report of shots fired.

The U.S. Marshal’s Task Force was attempting to arrest 39-year-old Floyd Brown, of Springfield, Ill, on an outstanding warrant. McHenry County Deputy Sheriff Jacob Keltner, sworn as a Special Deputy U.S. Marshal assigned to the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force, was struck by gunfire outside the hotel. He was transported to a hospital in critical condition.

A female acquaintance of the suspect was also shot during the incident. The preliminary investigation shows that no rounds were fired by any law enforcement. The female’s injuries were likely sustained by gunfire from Brown, who was apparently using a rifle. She was treated and released for non-life-threatening injuries from a local hospital.

Brown fled the area in a gray or silver Mercury Grand Marquis with an Illinois license plate number of BFI3112. Brown was believed to be armed and dangerous. That information was broadcast to law enforcement agencies across Illinois and Wisconsin.

Troopers from the Illinois State Police later located the suspect vehicle southbound on Interstate 55 between Bloomington and Springfield. When troopers attempted to stop the suspect vehicle, it crashed and the suspect barricaded himself in the vehicle.
