Several local schools are closed today and residents are on edge in the Chicago suburb of Fox Lake, IL, as authorities end the manhunt for three suspects wanted in the murder of fifty-two year old Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz of the Lake County Sheriff’s Department.

Although the manhunt has been reduced, the intensity of the search has not. Investigators continue to follow leads, view surveillance footage, and perform “saturation patrols” that will lead them to the two armed and dangerous white males and one black male.

“A memorial for Lt. Gliniewicz continues to grow outside the Fox Lake police station. He was the first on-duty officer shot and killed in Lake County since 1980.

The Northeast Illinois Council of the Boy Scouts of America will hold a memorial for Lt. Gliniewicz at 6 p.m. Wednesday, at Lakefront Park on Nippersink Boulevard in Fox Lake. Another vigil is expected to be held at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Fox Lake police station.”

This is a developing story.
