A man shot by police after he fired numerous times on them has died.
George R. Scoville, 47, was identified as the gunman, the Daily Herald reported Tuesday.
A hit-and-run traffic accident at Lake Street and Lombard Road in Addison reportedly preceded the shooting Monday evening, according to information provided by Addison police.
The accident, which did not result in injuries, occurred at about 5:40 p.m. At about 6:30 p.m., Addison officers responded to a home on the 20W300 block of Belmont Place near Addison Trail High School to investigate the accident. Scoville exited the home, pointed a gun at the officers and began shooting.
He retreated back into the residence. Police set up a perimeter and immediately evacuated the neighborhood, including the high school.
Scoville again exited the house and fired his weapon numerous times, police said. Police shot Scoville, who was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
The DuPage County Major Crimes Task Force is investigating.
